The stores that have rotting food making up most of their garbage should use a very generous amount of disinfectant/ bleach to kill the super horrible smells that their garbage produces. Just like you clean your own garbage cans, these containers must be cleaned.  During the warm weather – which includes Tishrei – it is truly sickening & very disrespectful – and the smells bring the animals.

 

More trash cans near 770-

Fantastic initiative! Thank you so very much!!!!
This is the second year i noticed that if people do not have trash cans (kingston and eastern parkway particularly), then trash is just dropped on the ground.
It is a constant battle for the cleaners and could be quite helpful. Of course, then we would need someone to empty the trash cans.

Amazing but first maybe we should clean up 770

While it’s great to see people take action to fix something wrong. We do need to step back and take a look at the problem and see if this is something taking money from the public is fair or even fair to ask. It is no secret in the Jewish retail industry that Crown Heights (Kingston ave) is the best location and has the highest gross sales. With Tishre , multiple Pigeshas, daily tours, men’s kinus, ladies kinus, יא ניסן ג תמוז, please cry me a river. The stores legally and ethically have the obligation to keep the front of… Read more »

Yes they should do it but since they don’t, someone else has to take the initiative otherwise the area will be unclean

Maybe if every fundraiser and sale didn’t put up pole signs and windshield flyers, there would be a lot less garbage to clean up.

Why aren’t people taking accountability and cleaning up after themselves?
Why should we allow this to continue?

Don’t know Reb Sam personally, however I admire this initiative that he’s taken. The Rebbe’s neighborhood deserves to look stately, not c”v the opposite. Thank you!

I wholeheartedly commend this initiative! When I visited Crown Heights in January I had such a good time, I was thinking of moving there. But the garbage!! Unsightly piles of bags in the streets, which no doubt smell in the warmer months…more frequent garbage collection is needed. Shkoyach to the people trying to make a difference.

It was pleasure to walk down Kingston Ave. today! Thank you very much.

The streets in front of stores...
October 2, 2022 10:07 pm

The store owners should feel the responsibility to do this kind of cleaning. If it’s too much for them to keep up with because of the huge number of people, bli ayin hara, who come for yom tov, then they should be very happy to donate generously to Mr. Stern’s laudable project. After all, it’s obvious that the stores are B”H a lot busier than usual during Tishrei, which inevitably results in a lot more street traffic, which, in turn, causes a lot more trash in the streets, particularly in front of the stores. By the way, speaking of storekeepers’… Read more »
