NYC Department of Sanitation picks up residential refuse on sidewalks. They do NOT pick up commercial, restaurant, or food market waste. Walk down MacDougal Street or Bleecker Street and you’ll see what I’m referring to on any day of the week. Why not require commercial establishments to contain their refuse in vermin proof containers? Why not require commercial establishments to have their refuse removed more often?

I spent thousands of dollars cleaning a backyard. A few years pass and I have to hire a truck again. Fuck lazy bastards. It gets drug needles, people's furniture, I had about ten kitchen garbage bags thrown in there. Someone just throws it out the apartment window.

Dsny will get the trash out of the way so the rats have a clear path to the pile of food in front of sweet green every night.

The reason the trash is like that is 3 reasons

  1. people open garbage for bottles
  2. they put garbage out early and the rats chew it up
  3. the sanitation doesn’t dispose of it properly

So they are putting dumpsters on every block and not putting trash in bags out on the street?

Because that's the obvious final solution that works well in many non-dumb cities
