Hillside Avenue is a major third world ghetto mess and much of the mess (besides some of the crap businesses) is the major amount of garbage all over that stretch. Yes, some of the people there (especially the newer immigrants from Bangladesh) are just tossing their garbage/litter on the ground and so are many of the non-residents who go by to catch buses, but a big problem, which I always knew but could not quite prove, was the illegal dumping of garbage from the various businesses. AND now I have my proof as can be seen by this letter from DOS.
Now some of the businesses do clean up in front of their place and make their businesses nice and inviting, but others don’t and want to skirt the law.
So Folks, it pays to file complaints over and over and over to someone listens and does something!!!
Dear Mr. Joe Moretti:
I am writing in response to your e-mail dated June10, 2016 regarding litter conditions and improper disposal of refuse on Hillside Avenue between 169th Street and 173rd Street, Queens.
On June 22nd, Agents McGhee and Vincent of the Department of Sanitation’s Enforcement Division monitored the location and no one was observed littering or improperly disposing of refuse. However, a total of six Notices of Violation were issued to various businesses for failure to provide proof of private carter services for the collection of commercial refuse and recyclables.
Department of Sanitation Enforcement personnel will continue to monitor the location and Notices of Violation will be issued if sanitation code violations are observed.
Thank you for your e-mail.
Christopher Klingler, Chief/Director of Enforcement, New York City Department of Sanitation-DSNY
