City Trash Removal Resumes

Sunday, January 02, 2011

For the first time in a week, city sanitation department crews are out picking up garbage instead of plowing snow.

A limited number of crews are on the streets Sunday, picking up dumpsters outside large apartment buildings. On Monday, they resume full-time garbage removal, according to the regular schedule.

Residents should put their garbage out this evening, if they haven't already. People who did so earlier this week may need to shovel it out themselves from snowbanks; sanitation crews will only take bags and cans, if they can get them.

If your recycling trash is already out, you might as well put it back: the Sanitation Department says  recycling pickup is suspended until further notice.

The big apple will always be a union run town because the gals love the guy with the union label. It is a pity for those who have to slave for minimum wages, but things will change if they fill out an application and pass the sanitation workers test.
