I was informed at the February 16 meeting of the Broadway Flushing Homeowners’ Association that the Citywide Community Affairs Officer of the NYC Department of Sanitation, Ignazio Terranova, reviewed the rules and regulations regarding garbage collection.

Citizens may be fined if they place garbage out for pick up before 4 p.m. from October to March and before 5 p.m. from April to September.
Our government, in its ongoing quest to mold and make us model citizens and rid us of evil habits, has now decided to eradicate the scourge of premature ejection of refuse.

Who are the aggrieved and offended parties? What are the specific provisions of the law or statute, as well as applicable fines and when was it passed? Why is our garbage ejection subject to daylight savings time? It seems to me that these regulations are an attempt to extract money from the citizenry and to boost employment figures with an army of patrolmen who must now be schooled and trained to nab the premature ejectors among us.

Have they no shame?
