WHY is illegal dumping a challenge for the district? Well, that is the statement that Councilman I.Daneek Miller stated to NY1, “Illegal dumping is a challenge for the district”.
BUT why Mr. Miller, an all white area does not have an illegal dumping issue like Jamaica. Plus this is nothing new, this takes place all over the community and has been taking place for years and decades. But when you have elected officials, community leaders and church leaders who do very little to nothing for their community, when you have bad neighbors, like this shitty Family Dollar store, when you have a lack of enforcement, when you have a low amount for fines (this dollar store was fined a measly $100) and when there is not any kind of common sense (just put up a damn fence and install security cameras), this kind of shit will continue to go on and on and on in this community.
So Sanitation, elected officials and even this shitty neighbor dollar store all say “we are aware of the situation”. Well, that is the standard answer for all quality of life issues. The issue is the addressing and solving of the fucking problem. I love the line from the asshole spokeperson for this shitty Family dollar:
A spokesperson for Family Dollar thanked us for bringing it to his attention. He says he’s gathering more information to quote “address this concern promptly.”
REALLY, FUCKING REALLY. I mean this is your damn property, you mean you needed NY1 to bring this to your attention and you need to gather more information. WHAT FUCKING INFORMATION. Your property looks like it is from some third world country, what more information do you need ASSHOLE.
Clean Up Jamaica Queens, community activist Pamela Hazel and a few others have been bringing this and other quality of life issues to the attention of local elected officials, Queens Borough Presidents past and present and Department of Sanitation long before the local news was doing stories on this, In fact it is because of our perseverance and not giving up is why there is so much media attention on this issue that local leaders and this awful city are not properly addressing.
In the meantime, Rev Al Sharpton, blowhard, do nothing Senator. Leroy Comrie & former councilman for 12 years in the Family Dollar district and Assemblyman Clyde Vanel are attending the funeral this Saturday for the victims of the Hollis fire who died April 23 (http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2017/18/sheenbb_2017_05_05_q.html). Maybe after the funeral all three of these clowns can take a walk over to 109 and Merrick and then take a tour of the whole area, to see all the SHIT here and what many of our civilized residents (and home owners) have to deal with on a daily basis due to people like Comrie and a lack of enforcement and all the bullshit that is considered normal in this majority black community. BUT then that would not make a good photo op, considering that these conditions are not only due to the bottom barrel folks & businesses in the area who cause this, but the lack of true leadership with people like Comrie and company. And then these clowns, including Melinda Katz, will stand in front of a camera and say how “wonderful Jamaica is and is a good place to live, work and play. FUCK YOU, HYPOCRITES.

Jamaica Residents Fed Up Over Dollar Store Dumpster

Monica Rose is fed up.
Forced to live right next door to a massive mound of trash.
“It was like coming over the fence, ” said Rose.
As bad as it looks she said it smells even worse.
“Guys they come here to urinate, urine, feces, ” she said.
While the trash sits in what’s supposed to be a private dumpster lot for this Family Dollar store near the corner of 109th road and Merrick Boulevard, Rose says people in the neighborhood have turned it into a public dumping ground.
While we were there we spotted an old door, a couch, even an old cracked toilet all tossed in the pile. Joan Ramberan who lives across the street says it’s ruining the neighborhood.
“It’s not uplifting us just taking us down,” said Ramberan.
Rose showed us this ledger of all the people she’s reached out to for help; from the company to the city’s Department of Sanitation. She’s even contacted Council Member Daneek Miller’s office and yet the trash remains.
Sanitation officials say they are aware of the problem, in March they issued a summons to the store for dirty sidewalks which carries a $100 fine. It’s still pending.
The store has also received a summons for not displaying a certificate showing which company is supposed to pick up the trash.
On Wednesday a sanitation worker gave the store yet another summons.
A spokesperson for Family Dollar thanked us for bringing it to his attention.
He says he’s gathering more information to quote “address this concern promptly.”
Councilman Millers office says illegal dumping is a challenge in the district, but his office is committed to working with the community to address it.
As for Rose, she says this all could be resolved if the company just put up a gate, tall enough to prevent the illegal dumping.
“They need to do something the garbage is coming onto my fence. This is not fair to me,” she said.
