Ok, I was just curious. I'm in Hawaii now. While I'm in town Honolulu and live in a condo high rise (so haven't really seen trash collect around here), when I lived further up island sanitation had a device to grab/pick up trash cans outside of private homes and empty/dump the trash into the truck.

Based on the different places I've lived, though, NYC seems to have a pretty robust trash collection schedule. Perhaps not as robust as is needed, though?

I have seen some of the modern, rat-resistant trash cans being deployed in NYC, but it remains to be seen where, at the city level in city parks, etc., the city will invest what is needed to get all of those places covered.

i been to Hawaii several times. They have the same process in Honolulu (Waikiki) to collect trash. The trash is placed in a wheeled container an a garbage truck picks up the container and dumps it inside and then puts the wheeled container back in the street and another garbage man puts the container back into its place.

Just so people know parts of Hawaii have serious rat infestation issues.

Disgusting. Am thinking there isn't a Chinatown that isn't *FILTHY*, including the ones around the city.

It is interesting that at least before NYC cracked down you could by all sorts of Chinese insect and rodent control products down around Canal Street.

Completely disgusting! Funny thing is that--and while I don't doubt that some places on Oahu have a rat problem--I haven't come across any rats in the year and a half that I've been on island. Whereas back in NYC, there was never a day when I didn't see at least a handful.

I'll say it again, some people are stuffing themselves.
the craziest part is there is a rash of thieves stealing trash cans in NYC for scrap.
