CM Cabrera denounces inequity in sanitation workers assigned to the five boroughs


As the City Council began its preliminary budget hearings, member of the Committee on Sanitation and Solid Waste Management, Councilman Fernando Cabrera criticized the deployment of sanitation workers throughout the five boroughs.

The lawmaker explained that the Bronx has more tonnage of garbage than the other boroughs and it is the only place that sanitation has to make two trips to New Jersey. Additionally, what makes the job more challenging is the fact that many buildings in Manhattan are close to each other, while those in the Bronx are further apart.
