New York City has been a den for Rats, who emerge in group in search of food at night on the roads and in streets.
Their emergence and roaming around has been a matter of concerned for the residents and for commercial establishments.
Jessica Tisch, Sanitation Commissioner and Eric Adams, Mayor said in press conference that rates are absolutely going to hate and changing the time garbage bags can be piled between 8 – 4 p.m. The residents, however, can take out their trash by 6 p.m.
“If the bags are placed in sealed containers, under the new rule. Garbage must still be placed at the curb by midnight,’’ said, Jessica Tisch, Sanitation Commissioner, New York City.
The Urban Ecologist Michael Parsons is uncertain about the newest initiative to deal with increasing complaints with regard to waste piles and rats roaming on New York footpaths.
“Many odontologists evoked mixed response about this issue,’’ said, Michael Parsons of the plan. “On one hand, we are happy something is happening. On the other, we have argued that it is far better to work on the problem proactively rather some kind of knee-jerk reaction,’’
Eric Adams, Mayor told reporters that New York City regulations about the hours that wastage was allowed to place curbside for pickup had been in place since the late 1960s. While Jessica Tisch, Sanitation Commissioner pointed out that the city would also permit big building with nine or more units to prefer once a year to an early morning set-out time of 4-7 A.M.
“All possible efforts are being made to collect wastage during midnight rather than early morning,’’ she said, adding that, “Almost 25 percent of all our collection now take place at midnight. And for the large buildings that opt into the 4-7 A.M. setouts, we will be planning a tailored routes to get the trash off the street almost forthwith,’’
