WHY ARE THE STREETS SO DIRTY ON METROPOLITAN AVENUE?

WHY ARE THE SIDEWALK FULL OF GARBAGE FROM OVERFILLED GARBAGE CANISTERS THAT  SIT FROM FRIDAY TO SUNDAYS BLOWING ALL OVER THE PLACE?

WHY DOES RIDGEWOOD LOOK SO BEAUTIFUL?

ARE WE FORGOTTEN?     IS ONCE A WEEK REALLY, REALLY ENOUGH JUST FOR ONE PICK UP?

MUST WE ENDURE THE FILTH WHILE WALKING WITH OUR CHILDREN, OR SHOPPING FOR OUR FOODS, AND SEE SO MUCH PAPERS/GARBAGE ALL OVER THE PLACE?

AWARENESS!

CONCERNED

PUBLIC ADVOCATE!

today,sunday,jan.27th, at 8:30a.m. on metropolitan avenue, you will see a complete disgrace of filth all over this avenue. every garbage container on each corner is overflowing with garbage.

since last wednesday they were filled up. how this doesn't get the attention of the civic leader, the councilwomen, the senator, the chamber of commerce, or anyone else is beyond me.

I agree that everyone should protest by calling 311 day and night.

A simple call directly to Maspeth Sanitation Department and complete communication will result in a positive conclusion. There is no need to write articles all over the place. Just pick up your phone and call.

Since the Garbage canisters are already full, and it is only Thursday, my suggestion is to ask for a Friday morning pick up for now.

Middle Village is not a forgotten Community. I served the Community for decades and I live in the area. So just give a call!

Being in business for 33 years in Real Estate, and on Metropolitan Avenue, I would like to comment on this article.

I am sure through Senator Addabbo's office, communicating with the Maspeth Sanitation Department, that changes to pick up scheduling can be worked out.

IT IS ALL ABOUT COMMUNICATION!

The Maspeth Sanitation Department does a good job, and I tip them every Christmas. I live in Middle Village, and I must admit the Metropolitan Avenue streets and sidewalks are a clear case of neglect. I watch store owners sweeping daily, but with high winds, and the overflowing garbage from the canisters on street corners, makes for a sloppy and ugly scene for the entire Avenue.

The blame is not the Sanitation Department, just a change in scheduling of pick ups from Sunday mornings to early Saturday mornings is needed.

THE MAIN REASONS FOR OVERFLOWING GARBAGE CANISTERS ARE THE INDIVIDUALS WHO RENT APARTMENTS ON METRO OR RIGHT OFF METRO. THEY FILL THE GARBAGE CANISTERS WITH THEIR PERSONAL GARBAGE. I HAVE SEEN THEM.

THEY SHOULD BE TICKETED NOT THE STORE OWNERS, WHO CONSTANTLY BATTLE THE MESS EACH DAY.

******THE SENATOR, THE CITY COUNCILWOMAN, THE CIVIC ASSOCIATION PRESIDENT, THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE AND EVERY OTHER ORGANIZATION SHOULD GET INVOLVED TO CLEAN UP A ONCE THRIVING AVENUE.

Bad enough that inspectors from New York constantly inspect businesses for ratings, giving fines, but the economy, closings of many stores, and the new Graffiti all over the Avenue makes and gives a BLACK EYE to the town of Middle Village,NY.

Collectively we need to address this problem and make it a better place for us and our children.
