Notice above from Community Board 6
"Would you be so kind as to possibly post the notice regarding bulk pick up problems noted in the CB6 newsletter? I have grudgingly hauled my sealed mattress to the curb 5 times! 311 isn't aware of the problem and told me to call again this morning - which I will since no one is picking up at the garage but I've noticed couches and larger items piling up in the neighborhood."
After corresponding with Jackie, I grabbed my camera and took a short walk around the neighborhood. Right on my own block, I saw two mattresses and pieces of furniture that have been discarded at the curbed for some time. On Court Street, I found a couch that I have passed several times in the past week.
As for Jackie, she is still trying to get through to the Sanitation Department.
"I have called the garage number throughout the morning and it just rings, no voicemail option - just like Red Hook Post Office but that's another story!", she told me.
Have you noticed more bulk items cluttering the sidewalks?
