Sanitation Town Hall at St. Francis Tomorrow Evening

Update: the Town Hall has been postponed to April 13 (see above). The Brooklyn Heights Association has advised us that there will be a Sanitation Department Town Hall Meeting tomorrow evening, Wednesday, March 22, starting at 6:00 p.m. at St. Francis College, 180 Remsen Street.

Let the Department of Sanitation know your issues with litter and trash. In addition, the placement of litter baskets and litter collection, street cleaning enforcement, and Organics Recycling will be among the discussion topics.

The Town Hall is sponsored by City Council Member Stephen Levin.

    Will placement and emptying of trash cans on the Promenade be part of the discussion? On weekends and after I see towering piles of trash around the already-full receptacles there. The resident rats must love this!

    While I appreciate the tough job they do, it appears to me that the Sanitation Dept. must have something on the Mayor. Whatever happened to regular pickup? We get 6 inches of snow and the garbage and recycling isn’t picked up for a week. Trash cans on the streets disappear, never to be seen again, and the remaining ones don’t get emptied often enough so they’re not overflowing.

    You could pass out from the heavy stink of the methane gas.
    “On Remsen St. Between Clinton St. and Court St, underneath the grates next to St. Francis College, there is a foul smell of accumulated sewage. A sewage pipe had broke a month ago. Instead of fixing the broken sewage pipe the grate is cordoned off with SF red cones. Disgusting!!! Unhealthy!!!A plague could result from this unsanitary condition.”
    St.Francis college has been aware of this problem for more than a month and had called the Fire Dept.
    Water Pipes in Brooklyn date from 1858 according to the Daily News. Pile driving, construction of monstrous condominiums, plus the cold weather will
    reek more havoc in our Brooklyn Heights neighborhood. ( March 2, 2017 the ground cracked open on Montague St. burst water main flooded the streets, thirty businesses and the R Train subway with smelly brown water).
    There are no diagrams with reference points of where these rusted pipes are located. We can only find them after they burst. Fun Fact: Some of these pipes are composed of Ceramic and Clay.

    ” . . . plus the cold weather will reek more havoc.”

    Well, the havoc in this particular instance does reek.

    Cold weather indeed wreaks havoc. I agree.

    A pun is a clever and amusing use of a word or phrase with two meanings, or of words with the same sound but different meanings. For example, if someone says “The peasants are revolting,” this is a pun because it can be interpreted as meaning either that the peasants are fighting against authority, or that they are disgusting.
