One of the neighborhood places that’s doubling as a receptacle for illegal dumping is the municipal lot on Avenue Z and East 17th Street. The spot is maintained by DOT, so garbage is removed fairly frequently. But in between pickups, you can almost always find garbage bags and empty boxes there.

And the lucky duck is…
1616 Sheepshead Bay Road
Now you may be saying, “Wow, great, now we caught the buggers and they can get the punishment they deserve. Justice at last!”
But… err… no. Apparently they need to be caught red-handed in order to be punished. I mean, hey, maybe the boxes wandered over there by themselves.
