"This sickening site is what queens residents had to endure over the weekend 5/3&4/2014. A filthy bedspread, boxes, dirty diapers and other household garbage at our BUS STOP.
Unfortunately, we live among uncivilized people who really should have stayed in their caves. They disguise themselves as normal human beings and we suffer as a result.
This location is Merrick Boulevard & 108th Avenue. The garbage bin is for litter, NOT for household garbage, but the area is used as a permanent garbage dumping ground.
For years residents have been complaining and asking local leaders to enforce the law. ($100 fine for household usage) A sign is placed on every garbage bin. So far, no law enforcement.
The borough president's office said that sanitation needs identification to enforce the law. But sanitation does not bother to look for I.D. So, in an effort to assist, I took the address and photos of the discarded boxes. The garbage belongs to 104-19 Merrick Boulevard.
As Councilman, Leroy Comrie, vowed to clean-up this area, according to the Queens Chronicle. Now as Deputy BP, he has totally forgotten his vow. His personal agenda, is running for another office.
Ruben Wills, Councilman said that he will introduce a bill to put violators in jail. But he was led away in handcuffs today (5/7/14) for misuse of public funds. He might be headed to jail instead.
Ms. Boranian, you are the constituents personnel in the B/P office. Can you please ask sanitation to enforce the law? I will call your office in a few days for a follow-up." - Pamela Hazel
