Increase Access to Trash Bins In Harlem
In 2018 the city removed over 200 trash bins from the streets of Harlem. Despite a call for more resources, during the Covid19 pandemic even more trash bins were removed. This is an unjustified plight against the community, especially in light of New York City’s worsening rat infestation. Hundreds of trash cans were removed by the city; we call on the city to use their budget to replace them. We also encourage the use of solar bins to promote greener and more hygienic public spaces. Solar bins also require fewer collections, therefore it would be a cost saving addition.
