Plastic Waste Around the Neighborhood
« on: March 28, 2020, 05:45:10 PM »
This morning I went to Elmhurst Hospital to take a photo of the "Thank You" sign  by the park. What I found was an incredible amount of discarded gloves and masks by the hospital - though you can see plenty on 37th Avenue.  Besides an environmental problem -  who knows how many are toxic?  I posted on f/b to Catalina Cruz but this issue is also hitting other areas.  Quite frankly I am so disgusted....

I received two emails from Danny Dromm, about the issue. The first stating there was issues with the guys whom sweep up the avenues.  and the second that he has forwarded the complaint to the Sanitation department.  He  had asked to keep him inform.  Since then I still see the gloves ( as I bet you all do) all around.  Sadly  along with this I see the plastic cups  and other plastic refuse  which is a bigger issue.  I am at the point that I think the planet would be better off with way less humans.

The parking lot at the College Point Target/Shoprite was full of these used gloves as well. Also I noticed the Forest Hills/Rego Park FB page has a long thread of complaints about it in their neighborhood as well. :(

I guess the slobby carelessness is universal.
