Maybe that wasn't a good idea after all
From the Brooklyn Paper:
Some Bay Ridgites are saying that litter along Fourth Avenue has gotten worse since the city removed public garbage cans at the request of a local panel that thought doing so would make the neighborhood cleaner.
At the request of Community Board 10, the Department of Sanitation removed 14 trash cans from Fourth Avenue between Ovington Avenue and 68thttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifh Street on May 9 as part of a test to see if the removal of the cans — which had become magnets for household trash — would decrease the amount of litter in the area.
But the litter has gotten worse.
The removal of the cans comes a year after CB10 voted to ask the agency to get rid of them because they would overflow with trash — usually after residents illegally dumped household waste in them.
The agency initially ignored the board’s request, but in April of this year, it said it would remove the cans.
Meanwhile, Astoria's 34th Avenue just got trash cans.

Idiots. Where Manhattan has a can on every single corner - we must fight for a few in Queens - and these people eliminated theirs to fight folks who throw household garbage in the cans? Idiots - where are the household garbage ending up - in weedy lots or throw around? Idiots!
Why don't you just eliminate the illegal basement and attic dwellers who dump their trash in these cans so the city doesn't know they are occupying illegal apartments?
The halal cart guy seem to be making good out of this situation.
Maybe if sanitation did their jobs properly the trash cans wouldn't be overflowing. Taking the cans away just made their nice union job that much easier...
Well, maybe the not-so-good-idea was CUTTING BACK COLLECTIONS?
It was daily for public cans on major streets, but now is only when they just happen to be on the block for household collection.
With or without garbage cans, NY'ers are still pigs!
I think we're past the point of no return on this one. The "litter baskets" around me seem to fill with plastic bags full of household trash almost the moment after they are empty.
