I share your pain Greenpoint! I'm tired of this shit in my neighborhood too…seriously, dog poo everywhere. Prospect Heights/Lefferts Garden/Flatbush/Crown Heights and etc. Doesn't it make sense to the department of sanitation to make it mandatory for every neighborhood to have trash cans! Leave no street behind! Cement the trash receptacle into the ground so it can't be moved if you must, if that's a concern. And for sure solar powered garbage trucks or at least low-emission vehicles that include safe mineral based agents
that neutralizes the funk! Come on we can do this! People need jobs, how many people can this put to work? I have a kid and she shouldn't have to play" watch the shit!". It's still a nice world and we've got to prove it starting right at home.

When I get off the metro and walk the 4 blocks to visit family I don't want to be wadding through dog shit and garbage in this friendly, pleasant and otherwise very enjoyable neighborhood.

Because I live and work in Brooklyn. I also am raising two small children in Greenpoint and find both W'burg and Greenpoint to be some of the most garbage ridden areas in the city.

Obviously to keep the garbage off the streets and not to clog up the drains

I live here and this has always been a major gripe. McCarren Park is a garbage dump, especially after the weekend. Not only do we need more trash cans we need to have the ones that are already here emptied. What good is it to have them if they are overflowing and garbage strewn around them? In my opinion the sanitation department sorely neglects the whole area.
