Karen Ellis from DEP explained the AWR (below) program, the cost and benefits. The mailing sent out reflects the initial cost of monthly coverage and will be slightly increased after a year. Also as AWR's contract is renewed, there could be changes in cost.

Queens Sanitation Community Outreach Rep. Ignazio Terranova updated us on garbage pickup change which is back to the normal schedule - DO NOT place bags at curb before 5 PM. Also the recyle bins scattered about - Juno & Yellowstone has them - are not being used properly. People are dumping all sorts of gross items and not adhering to proper disposal.
