If Bill de Boob and some in city council get their way residential buildings in NYC may soon be paying for rubbish collection.

Interesting considering this Brooklyn councilman happens to represent one of the filthiest districts in the city.

Who knew this was done all pro bono. Makes me wonder even more where all my hardearned taxed dollars go.

This is stupid. Charging owners for garbage collection will lead to owners dumping their garbage in the city cans, empty lots, or in front of other buildings to avoid paying.

The city is throwing money at the rat problem but now they want to cause a garbage problem that will draw more rats.

They can just throw it on the street. In its social-engineering wisdom, the city council is making littering a nothing event with no consequence.

For those more open-minded, a more extreme approach worked in other parts of the world. We do buy too much crap in this country.

This has nothing to do for the better of the city. It only serves to separate the taxpayer from more money to fund deBlasio's follies and fuel his preverted liberal agenda.
