Milestone Park: Dumping Ground For Household Trash?

We received a call from a concerned citizen pointing us to a heap of what seems to be household trash dumped in Milestone Park at 18th Avenue between 81st Street and 82nd Street.

Local reporter, Elle Spektor, visited the site and had this to say:

I’m attaching a few pictures of the mess from the park. It wasn’t as bad as I would have imagined it to be. The park itself was entirely clean, it was just the grassy area behind the benches (blocked off by the black fence you’ll see in pictures) that was covered in trash. Ironically, most of the surrounding trash cans were entirely empty. The kids park across the street was spotless, except for a few ripped up water balloons.

Take a look at the photos and let us know, have you noticed a considerable amount of trash at Milestone Park, or other local parks for that matter?
