THE BIG LIE: Mike Reali, vice president of Royal Waste Services,s aid the owners and staff at the dump are from the community and they bring high paying union jobs with benefits to Jamaica residents.“Royal Waste is tremendously invested in the well-being and vitality of the community we call home,” he said. “We operate a facility according to all regulations set forth by city, state and federal regulators. We pride ourselves on continuously raising and improving our safety and environmental standards.” Excerpt from Times Ledger article, March 2, 2017. Wonder how many waste dumps are in Mike Reali’s neighborhood.
So, where are the elected officials and community leaders standing up for what is right and fighting to toss Royal Waste to the curb. Recently Councilman I. Daneek Miller and a few members from Greater Allen A.M.E Cathedral and Rev. Andrew Wilkes held a “pray/protest” at Royal Waste to bring some attention to this polluting, poisonous company whose trucks have terrorized residential streets by not following the law. BUT where are Congressman Gregory Meeks, Senator Comrie, Senator Avella, Senator James Sanders, Councilman Donovan Richards, Councilman Ruben Wills, Assembly Member Alicia Hydndman, Assembly Member Vivian Cook, Assembly Member Clyde Vanel, Queens Borough President Melinda Katz (she knew how to make an appearance at the Astoria Dump just the other day), Rev. Floyd Flake and his wife Elaine, all the members of Community Board 12, all of the various church leaders and other so-called community leaders like Archie Spigner, Manny Caughman. Where were the folks from Greater Jamaica Development Corporation like President Hope Knight, how about the Jamaica BID. AND how about the wonderful Public Advocate, Letitia James, I mean this is a no brainer for her to show up for this. WHERE? You all should have been there in FULL FORCE supporting Councilman Miller.
And just exactly what has to be so fucking bad in a black community for it’s residents & it’s so-called leaders to say enough. I mean if poisoning black and other ethnic babies and children is not enough (why do you think Jamaica has the highest rated of asthma and who know what else), then black communities have no hope what-so-ever. I mean you are allowing yourselves to be poisoned.
It is bad enough black communities like Jamaica get all the shit dumped from homeless shelters to Royal Waste. BUT it is especially bad when the majority of black leaders from Jamaica turn their backs on a major problem of epic proportions that create a healthy hazard to the community, to babies, children, the elderly and the rest of us and affect our quality of life in an extremely detrimental way. FOR SHAME, but I have come to expect that in this black community. WOW, even when your own babies, children and elderly are slowly being poisoned (who knows the long term health effects from Royal Waste on this community), you still don’t stand up for what is right. And you all call yourselves Democrats and for the people. The almighty dollar seems to be getting in the way of your conscience, if some of you still even have that.
All the talk about “revitalizing Jamaica”, all the talk about the “Jamaica Now Action Plan”, all the talk about investing in Jamaica, yet this serious issue in the community with Royal Waste gets swept under the rug and by people like Katz and Comrie. Think it would have been swept under the run in Forest Hills, but then again, it would have NEVER been placed in Forest Hills.
AND where is the media in all of this. I mean this is a BIG STORY about poisoning a community (Jamaica has the highest rate of Asthma), the mob run waste industry, elected officials in bed with these folks or completely ignoring the issue as Katz does and environmental racism on the level of Flint Michigan. What elected officials and community leaders gave the okay on this, I mean, it could not just have sneaked in all by themselves, some folks had to give the green light: Comrie, Meeks, Smith, Scarborough, Flake, dead Marshall, etc, they were all around. Royal Waste/Regal Recycling contributed to dirty Councilman Reuben Wills campaign. Come on, act like you are journalists.
Hacks like Mayor deBlasio, Public Advocate Tish James, BP Melinda Katz, Congressman Leroy Comrie, Councilman Rory Lancman have all spoken in Jamaica about “undocumented immigrants” or Muslim hate crimes, YET, a MAJOR CRIME, environment racism and slowly poisoning Jamaica residents in that surrounding area of Royal Waste, which by the way include “undocumented immigrants” & Muslims, has been COMPLETELY IGNORED by all of them. When did you ever hear one of them speak out about this or Royal Waste, when did Tish James haul her ass out here and stand in her high heeled shoes in front of Royal Waste on the broken down Douglas Avenue where pools of poisonous water are all abound. WHEN? When did a well known local media outlet do an extremely in depth story on this and I am not talking some little one minute fluff piece on WPIX, which they did not even do that). WHEN?
So how is all of this any different from this dialogue from The Godfather (just exchange the characters to folks like DeBlasio, Katz, Comrie and the rest of the crew :
Let us educate ourselves on this polluting, poisonous and shady bad neighbor, ROYAL WASTE, who does not follow the rules and should have never been allowed to open such a business in a heavily residential area:

And let’s hear from some other folks about Royal Waste, including a former employer of the notorious BAD neighbor that it seems many elected officials are in bed with:
So, the company (and family) name itself, Royal Waste, should be a visible clue for anyone who would even THINK to do business with these crooked, corrupt, Neanderthal-thug mutations.
As a former employee of this filthy company of sub-human debris (whose business offices are located inside of a trailer, on property that the Reali family owns, but refuses to build on it because of the intensely cheap matriarch’s refusal to pay property taxes on an ostensibly empty lot). During the short time that I worked for these ugly, unstable empowered idiots (all of whom are an embarrassment to actual primates!), I’ve had furniture ‘accidentally’ thrown at me, a tyrannical, incompetent family member named Tina threaten my job (for no reason), and online pornography viewed daily (and openly) by demented brother Peter Reali, because there doesn’t appear to be any government regulation within a slimy-and-sleazy, family owned trash dump that is so repulsive, that even REAL organized crime family ring goons shrug in utter disgust at the sight of these troglodytes!
But, the crowning moment of shame and danger came when one of their own workers was crushed to death by a machine operator during my first week of service, because the worker was not wearing the proper Day Glo vest while walking on the company grounds outside of the trailer offices of this toxic dump site (the least of which was toxic because of the inanimate garbage and debris).
Shortly after that, I finally took leave from that trailer from hell that is unfit for humans, passed go, collected my $200 (and unemployment insurance), and then I never looked back at the Reali den of family owned filth and openly practicing psychopathy ever again.
My recommendation to any and all sane and ethical business persons? Banish and boycott this SCOURGE before they advance to ‘accidentally’ knocking off anyone else who comes between their filthy garbage pit, and the even filthier money that continues to falsely empower this ugly empire of ignorant, arrogant, uneducated slugs!
What’s truly sad is how the entire Reali Family behind Royal Waste (which is a nepotistic mix of father, brother and sisters, all of whom personify arrogance, entitlement, ignorance and zero education), continue to behave in ways that even animals themselves could never behave like! They all give MENDACITY a bad name!
But, anyone who would even consider doing business with a company named ROYAL WASTE, should expect nothing less than a royal waste of their time and money in the first place, not to mention having to deal with some of the mangiest (and dumbest) rats in the sewer!
JQ LLC said…
You know, everywhere I look in Manhattan, towers commercial and rental, and pestilent hyper-development of unsightly new faux luxury towers, all have dumpster bins with the Royal Waste logo. This may be why they are able to get away with the shit they do since they provide a service to the perpetual money makers of the city. High end real estate.
So it’s not a surprise that all the collective feces and debris of the elites gets sent to the dirty southeast of Queens, the bastard stepchild of the borough. And why any transgressions committed by this defiantly corrupt business, from traffic violations to fatal accidents on their lot, gets ignored by our so-called officials.
And will continue. Because this city is in debt to these mendacious fiends and they know it. As well as scumlords who run clusters and stingy developers who won’t build unless they gouge the paychecks of their workers
But if it’s an abandoned lot near a trendy niche area with skyline views like Astoria cove, then it gets the attention from the hacks in elected office and their appointees.
Their discriminatory concerns cannot be more obvious.
To CleanUpJamaica and JQ: Don’t expect a developer’s whore like Melinda ‘Alley’ Katz to investigate the toxic, raw sewage dump that exists on 170th Street and Douglas Avenue (a disgrace of epic proportion), when the toxic dump site itself doesn’t even smell as badly as Katz and the Reali Family scourge–COMBINED!
Hats off to CleanUpJamaica and JQ, then, for talking truth to corrupt power, not airbrushing reality and always challenging the crooked powers that insanely be! As a resident who lives only blocks away from this ‘open cancer’ above ground, I gave up on this openly practiced crime spree years ago, after making many complaints to my worthless city council creep, worthless assemblyman, worthless state senator and completely worthless representative (as they have all ignored my complaints and looked the other way with impunity–a testament to how city and state government has long ago collapsed, and completely failed to represent their completely languishing constituenty, and the reason for why crime, violence, lawlessness, vigilantism and anarchy are all on the rise–and, climbing daily by the hour!
Watch this poisonous waste facility in action, all while located across from a park and residential homes to the south and residential homes to the north on the other side of the LIRR tracks. While filming this, the noise and the stench was unbearable. The tall building in the background in the 2nd video is that of the NYCHA senior citizen apartments, just two blocks from this environmental mess.
Time for the Jamaica corrupt kingdom to be dismantled!
