Do you or anyone you know use those little brown garbage cans? It is supposed to be used for “food scraps” here in the 5 boroughs, but not a single household on my block in Midwood (Flatbush) or anywhere else that I go seems to be using them.
What a huge waste of city money.
The city loves citizens like you. Because you increase city revenues when you pay your sanitation summons for not complying with this.
And believe you me, those sanitation inspectors are coming to a garbage can near you.
But, Joseph, it isn’t a law — just a suggestion.
I thought it was mandatory.
It will become mandatory at a later date. My neighbor put it out (in B.P.) , and after a week she called 311 that it hadn’t been picked up. She was connected to Sanitation and they told her that since they have only one truck in this area it will take a while. She then emptied it into the regular trash. A few days later she got a call that the truck is in front of her house and the brown bin isn’t there.
