New Public Garbage Cans, Is There Improvement?

A new Sanitation Department litter basket appeared on the corner of East 14th Street and Avenue Z this morning, making us wonder if the agency is finally showing concern for the torrent of trash pouring daily onto Sheepshead Bay’s streets.

At the same time, we’ve heard from a smattering of residents that the new garbage pickups that went into effect on July 1 has been improving the situation.

Have you noticed any new garbage cans in your area? Has the situation improved since July 1?
