Jamaica has a lot of shitty neighbors who have no respect for the community, the environment or others and that includes many shitty businesses here like Royal Waste and the very shitty Metropolitan Lumber on Merrick Blvd who rarely cleans up around their property and leaves lumber that they sell outside and uncovered.
Well, Jamaica resident and community activist Pamela Hazel has had enough of Metro’s bullshit and her and her crew took it right to the culprit. Of course no elected official like Miller or Comrie in sight. Guess it was not the photo op they were hoping for, you know like some lame ass street naming ceremony.
People in this community need to stop supporting businesses that treat this neighborhood like shit. But then these businesses have learned this from the homey ghetto class, who have so little respect for the community as well.
From Queens Courier:
Outraged residents rally outside of Jamaica lumber yard demanding safety improvements
“Wood” you please cover your lumber?
That’s a question some angry southeast Queens residents asked as they gathered outside of Metropolitan Lumber’s Jamaica lumber yard over the weekend for a rally to get the company to improve maintenance and safety at the lumber yard.
The New York Communities for Change Queens Chapter joined the protesters outside at 108-20 Merrick Blvd. on Saturday, Oct. 1, demanding that Metropolitan Lumber clean and maintain the property, and enclose its lumber.
According to protesters, the pieces of wood at the lumber yard are currently unsecured, uncovered and stacked above the property’s perimeter fence, creating a hazard to passersby and members of the community. They are concerned that the wood could fall and injure pedestrians, especially during times of inclement weather.
Protesters say that at Metropolitan Lumber’s other Queens locations, in Corona and Astoria, the lumber is stored in enclosed structures. The protesters want to see the same standards implemented at the Jamaica lumber yard.
Those at the rally presented their demands to the owner of the property.
QNS has reached out to Metropolitan Lumber for comment and is awaiting a response.
