The following a press release from the offices of State Senator David Storobin:
As of last month, Brooklynites can enjoy a cleaner Avenue U, thanks to the efforts of State Sen. David Storobin (R-Brooklyn).
After opening his District Office at 22-01 Avenue U in June, the Senator noticed garbage being dumped illegally on the street, which is one of Brooklyn’s most vibrant commercial strips. The Senator reached out to the local DSNY supervisor, requesting that new trash cans be placed on the avenue at strategic locations where dumping had occurred.
“I urge residents to use the new trash cans only for litter from shopping at the wonderful small businesses here on Avenue U,” Storobin said. “By working together, we can keep the street clean for businesses, shoppers and strollers alike.”
Household garbage cannot be placed in the cans, or they may be removed once again.
Wait, did he just threaten us? Well, we hope it works out better than our Garbage Theory…
