Another Jamaica garbage report

Hey Joe, thank you sir for bringing the pervasive trash problem to light in Jamaica, Queens. I happen to live on the South-side and just like how it is up North, the garbage problem is bad all around Sutphin Blvd. where I live. Sometimes I even catch people in the act of littering and police witness it but don't issue violations to offenders. It's gotten out of hand, I'm in the process of composing a letter to Queens officials (the email addresses that you gave on your May 20 post on the trash). In the meantime, here are some pictures I've took around my area of South Jamaica.

Keep it up Joe!

Fellow Jamaica Resident:

Good for you. This is Joe from Jamaica, Queens. Keep posting photos of the garbage problem in Jamaica (which is really bad all over) and put pressure on local politicians and city and community officials. Also file complaints with 311 and the Department of Sanitation as well and don't let up. We need more and more people like you here to stand up and have your voice heard. We of Jamaica, Queens are not going to take this anymore from our residents who cause the problem to our local politicians and city/community leaders who are not addressing this enough, if at all. Find out who your councilmember and assemblymember are and put the pressure on them, but contact all of Jamaica politicians, because this is all their problem as well. Some of the areas I have been complaining about our starting to get cleaned up, but you have to be non-stop with this and cannot let up or give up.

Here are my previous emails from another post, plus more. Use them to voice your opinion and keep it up. Also contact local newspapers, local news such as WPIX, where reporter Monica Morales is so good at doing stories on garbage in the communities and bringing it to the attention of everyone.

Keep doing what you are doing. So should others who are concerned about what is going on in Jamaica. This garbage/litter problem will not be acceptable anymore. FIGHT & BE HEARD!

Ain't gonna happen.

The machine controlled media will ignore you, then if you are a pest, they will appoint their guys to run an anti-litter program that will soon morph into all sorts of tweeder programs that will provide photo-ops for the boys and girls from the clubhouse and at some point you will get marginalized.

Two years later the situation will remain the same ... and will continue to be so until its decided that your community needs a quarter of a million people and potential investors need to be enticed.

"Move or get used to it".........That is your comment..........so your solution is to do nothing, not even try to make your hood better.........it is that type of thinking that is the reason so many queens hoods are they way they are , lack of empathy like people like you who do not want to do anything except complain, give up or do nothing and "get used to it". Hell, at least try or make an effort before you bail out.
