CaLll the depatment of sanitation tell them the address of your building and the
problem. He will not give you cans to put the garbage in.Well, I think
hes required to do that but if not ask them what days them come to
pick up the trash its usually monday wednsday and friday morning,
Put it in a bag late at night, near the curb. blue bags for recycled.
If he has private service just throw it on the street curb anyway, and
let him worry about it
: : my landlord does not provide any place to put out the garbage,
: : so i am required to keep it in my apartment until its time to put it
: : out on the street. Last night I got a call from the landlord because
: : I had incorrectly disposed of some cans of paint. I told him I didn't
: : know what the proper proceedure was and that I doubted it was really
: : my responsibility to know how garbage is supposed to be placed for collection.
: : I suspect that he should be required to provide an area for garbage removal,
: : and that it should be his (or supers) job to properly place the garbage on
: : the street. Where can I find the "law" on this?
: Are you in NYC? or NYS? The shortest answer is YES: garbage is his resposibility, but recyling is shared with tenants. There might be a better answer from the main menu here on Tenant.net.
: Here is the NYC Sanitation dept website: you can read about and download Recycling info, garbage collection info, even the actual law (if memory serves...). Or use search feature on main NYC website: http://www.ci.nyc.ny.us/ Those paint cans probably should have been Recycled.
