    My block is sometimes the target of strong winds and cascading streams of water during rain storms and many a time I’ve found garbage pails (and sometimes just the garbage) that flowed down from upstream on my property. In addition, the folks who collect sometimes seem to take the cans they’ve emptied for a stroll before releasing them.

    In any event, I leave it by the curb and the owner most often retrieves it before the next collection.

    This brown garbage can has my address on it.

    And it’s little, but not in a cute way.

    I don’t want it.

    Meno: you have my sympathies.

    If it’s really bothering you, you can vote our lovely mayor out of office. Or more accurately, you can’t…

    The liberals who don’t have a clue as to the volume of “organic trash” the average Yiddish Family generates, or what leftover fish smells like a few days after a three day Yom Tov, actually thought this was a viable idea. If I’d eat out more days than not, and only had to contend with a few eggshells and dry leaves, maybe I’d think so too…

    B”h my block hasn’t been so lucky – yet.

    As to the good news, I hear the containers inside can be very useful – and they’re free.

    Until the sanitation tickets start coming – but that’ll take a year or two. So enjoy your almost indiscriminate garbage pick-ups while you can…

    It’s not that they think it will work. These rules are designed to generate revenue from fines, not to save the environment.

    Trash disposal is a major issue for NYC. The city collections millions of tons of trash and needs a way to dispose of it. It is not cheap to dispose of trash. Just because you put it in the garbage, doesnt mean it doesnt have to be dealt with.

    There are no more landfills on Staten Island so the trash must be send to landfills in either Pennsyvlania or Virginia which is not cheap. Its alot cheaper for the city to try to recycle at least some of the trash in various ways , otherwise your taxes will have to go up to pay for it

    How exactly is the City of New York recycling my leftover chulent and chicken bones?

    I’m not sure I want to hear the answer.

    Leftover food is turned into compost which is used for fertilizer and methane gas

    So they’re gonna have a separate truck going around to collect this stuff, spilling half of it all over the street (because that’s what they do with all the garbage), then they’ll have to run it through some type of processing (because there’s always the moron who thinks his empty potato chip bag is considered food scraps) just for a bag of fertilizer which costs like 8 bucks at home depot?

    Whatever is biodegradable will biodegrade just fine in a regular landfill. I don’t understand the point of all this (except to make Joseph happy, of course).

    There already is a seperate reclycing truck

    When you put garbage in a landfill it biodegrades, but you cant use it otherwise, It will just stay there because there are other toxic items there

    If you make a special landfill for only biodegradeable items, you can remove the compost and use it and the garbage mound does not get any bigger

    Right. They already use those for recycling.
