Enforce the law on people who litter.

Yesterday in Bed Stuy I watched a girl throw her KFC cup on the floor even though she had 3 trash cans next to her. Smh!


There is a chronic dumping site next to two parks that I know of. DSNY passes by both atleast twice a week and never attempted to pick up any of the garbage.

I organized a community cleanup for one of the site last year and the parks department has been a bit more proactive with keeping it clean.

The other site I had to track down a phone number and make two phone calls. After passing by that particular heap for 3 weeks, it was gone in less than 4hrs.

The fleet is dated as are the majority of facilities. We do the best we can with what we are provided, which isn't much. Thankless job for sure. Add in the fact that the city is full of dirty animals. Littering and dumping is normalized. Wish I could do a better job but it's hard to give af when it's quite evident nobody around you does.

So true. Thank you for your service. Our sanitation guys on out route are the best!

But people are nasty!

In some places literally every corner is a chronic dumping site. That’s the problem. The garbage never ends. It’s possible the garbage you saw was picked up and then someone dumped more after that. As a sanman I see it all the time.

The city needs to start a 'keep our community clean' drive to get people engaged in seeing it as their duty to dispose of garbabge properly. I have heard people say they are keeping DSNY employed by littering/dmping garbage.

I try to have a conversation with them to change their minds when I see littering in progress in our neighborhood.

The city is just too big and we are short staffed to keep up.

Lastly, this is NYC. Of you start giving out tickets properly people will starts claiming these agents and cops are racist and it would stop immediately. The dirtiest neighborhoods are also mostly minority neighborhoods. But you can't say that out loud
Iíve only seen those summon guys at night time when itís overnight alternate side parking.

The filth in the city is a cultural thing. If people weren't slobs things would be a hell of alot better.
If I were mayor I would not care or respond to complaints. I would strongly enforce garbage laws.

Iím a black guy myself so no I do not see the classism or racism in telling people to not litter.

For example east Flatbush is mostly Caribbean. Go to the islands and try to dump garbage like that and people will come for you.

People are slobs but some guys are lazy on their route.

There are available trucks and crew. Last month I made a phone call (not to 311) and a truck with 4 employees showed up within 4 hrs to remove the garbage that had been sitting for over 2 weeks.

This block only has residential housing on one side so it is an even easier route.

When I organized our community clean up a truck was dispatched with a crew, outside of pick up days, to collect our garbage.

Let us not pretend as if sanitation guys don't have down time. At my job we work the full 8 hrs and try our best not to leave extra work for others. Infact we sometimes proactively work on issues that will be encountered later. We work as a team to get the job done. U will get chewed out by your fellow coworkers for being selfish.

We have down time for sure. It's called contractual breaks that our union fought for. I advise you to look into the history of our union. Mlk got assassinated because he was looking out for our best interests. So cry me a river in regards to our downtime. I break my back for my downtime. Sorry to hear about you having to work a full 8hrs. Point me in the direction of your air conditioned cubicle and I'll send my regards.

Our summons divisions (enforcement and San police) are severely understaffed, more so than any other unit. Even if they weren't, you can only write so many tickets as they're racist. In regards to the parks statement we don't touch parks property. As far as 311 complaints go the dept takes them very seriously so I advise you to call if there's is a garbage related problem in your neighborhood. We'll show up, get it done, take one of our breaks (lol) come back and it'll look exactly as it did before. Lots of 311s get thrown in the recycling bin as they are known trouble spots and crews stop by on the regular. You wouldn't know we were there though because as mentioned before we leave and the same spot gets dumped at again. It's almost like they know when we show up and that we'll show up to begin with...

Funny, one of you mentioned the Caribbean being clean. Caribbean blacks are the most filthy animals there are. Ooopppss! There goes my racism! Best to check my white privilege! Jokes aside, the areas where people rent and/or get free housing are the dirtiest areas. It's almost like ownership is directly correlated to cleanliness. Bring on more gentrification! It's easier on my back! I don't think race has anything to due with filth (see trailer trash rednecks that leech elsewhere in the country) but in nyc the dirtiest areas happen to be non-white. Should I check my privilege again?

My man if you on the job number 1 stop talking about the job on here. Number 2 cut the racist nonsense cause you don’t act like that in the garage around your black co workers so don’t do it behind the computer screen.
