Overflowing Garbage Cans on Northern Blvd
« on: August 23, 2021, 08:31:26 AM »
Has anyone else noticed the volume of trash in the cans on Northern Blvd (especially between 80th to 87th Street).  The sanitation department guys seem to have become especially careless about emptying the cans, leaving litter all over the street.  The stores and restaurants do little to remediate this issue leading to a significant daily pile of trash on the street each day.  Any tips on how we can get this resolved, I've spoken to a sanitation department manager to no avail.  Thank you,

I contacted 311 with pictures of the overflowing cans.  (In addition, there were large garbage bags surrounding the cans on Northern/81-83rd street.)  311 responded with "The Department of Sanitation investigated this complaint and found no violation at this location."

Yes, photos were attached.

I reported it on 8/16 at 10:49am, and received the response on 8/18 at noon.
