Jamaica Still Dealing With Trash Problem


Jamaica still has a trash problem. Local residents are dumping illegally, despite Department of Sanitation efforts to catch them and the city’s effort to clean up the neighborhood, NY1 reported. Since the station first reported the garbage problem in March, officials said that 37 lots have been cleaned ear 107th Avenue and Sutphin Boulevard. But undercover sanitation officers still find people ditching old mattresses and garbage. The situation has led some residents to protest at Borough Hall after Borough President Helen Marshall refused to meet with them.
