MTA urges riders to put garbage where it belongs after recent track fires

Aren't these the same fools that were taking trash cans out of subway stations to 'reduce litter', which resulted in more track fires? And they have the nerve to tell people to "put garbage where it belongs"?

Refer to the thread here on Deblasio's $32 mil war on rats. Many NYer are a bunch of animals. It's sad but true

Trash can out of the subway was a pilot program I believe. I think they retreated from that

Just another way to ticket and arrest us. I mean can you imagine now going to jail for eating a bag of chips on the train? What a totalitarian police state New York has become over the last 30 years

Arrest, probably not. Ticket? Darn Skippy. Who wants to live in a landfill?

Living in subhuman standards with **** poor transportation that gives excuses back and forth is also a given gem of New Yorker status.

Oh I don't know.....


Over the past decade or so have noticed many persons eating entire take away meals on subways and buses. Just the other day on the #6 train there was an AA mother and her several children chowing down on a Mikey D's feast.


Problem is these people either leave their rubbish behind on the train/bus and or elsewhere in the system (tracks, platforms, etc...). Even if they do chuck it into bin, those aren't emptied often enough and over flow. The result sooner or later is same; track fires, vermin and a host of other issues.


One saving grace with the decline of paper media readership is you don't have buses and trains (along with the entire system), littered with newspapers. All that discarded paper was a recipe for track fires.

Nobody to blame but ourselves for being slobs I guess.

The PATH stations don't have any either but then again you don't get quite as much trash throwing their garbage everywhere (or garbage throwing their trash if you prefer.)

Unfortunately, I'm going to have to put my foot down on a food ban.
