Hillside Avenue is one big garbage dump
Many businesses are not cleaning up in front of their places (165th to 174th) and some are actually dumping their business garbage in the public bins. Public bins are continuously overflowing and spilling on the ground due to infrequent pickup but more so because people are putting large amounts of household garbage into these receptacles (due to illegal apartments or landlords not providing garbage cans). I have watched people coming out of apartments and dump their household garbage in these public garbage cans, especially all of the ones on the South Side from 171st all the way to 179th. This morning I could not even put a circular from the newspaper in any of these, they were so filled and overflowing garbage. In fact this morning the public can at 174th in front of that dirty deli across from Major Mark Park was filled and overflowing and even had a huge wooden loading crate. This was like that on Thursday morning and nothing had changed except more garbage. I have seen this deli on a daily basis dump their business garbage in there. Speaking of Major Mark Park, a disaster of garbage and homeless people.
As far as the south side why isn't Councilman Miller on this, this is in his area and why isn't community board 12 doing something about this disaster called Hillside Avenue, it is a disgrace. It clearly looks like the slums of some third world country.
I do not have recent photos from today, but have photos from past visits and nothing has changed. Totally unacceptable and all leaders should be ashamed for allow this to continue.
Yet another reason why many are feed up with the current leadership.
