From the Queens Chronicle:
The city is considering reducing the number of weekly garbage pickups in parts of Long Island City from three times a week to twice a week, according to a Sanitation Department employee who spoke at the Community Board 2 meeting on May 7.
The employee, who declined to be named, said community members would probably not receive much advance notice from the Sanitation Department if the decision is made to alter trash collection services.
“They don’t let you know about anything until a week beforehand,” he said.
Sanitation would not confirm whether it is considering changing Long Island City’s collection schedule, but according to spokesman Matthew Lipani, “the department is looking into several areas across the city where the level of collection services in certain parts of the district don’t conform to the rest of the district for no apparent reason.”
Build towers, cut back on services. Makes sense.
