Garbage is piling up on city streets across all five boroughs after Thursday’s winter storm, and many residents complain their trash hasn’t been picked up since Christmas.
As CBS2’s Lisa Rozner reported, the Department of Sanitation says around 40,000 tons of garbage has gone uncollected in the last week.
Monday’s trash sat on the curb, adding to mounds of bombogenesis snow and even more garbage dating back to the holidays.
“It’s grungy and it’s dirty and it stinks,” Murray Hill resident Dan Kaufman said, “just like this administration.”
“It’s horrible, this is disgusting,” another Murray Hill resident told WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond. “This seems like it’s gotten completely out of control.”
