Menu overload: What to do
Another Reader Mail comes from Hoboken411 reader “Litterboken.”
She outlines some steps you can take to stop the influx of menus that clutter your lobby or common area in your building.
Stop with the menus!
“Here is a small step we citizens can all take towards both keeping our streets cleaner and providing some income for the city.
First, people should be aware that the city offers these bright yellow stickers for your doors. They read, “No Advertisements- City of Hoboken- Ord# 111-45”. I am sure you can call the city and have them mail you one. City Hall # is 201-420-2000, or call the office of Environmental Services directly at 201-420-2049.
However, I think this info applies to any citizen, regardless of having the sticker or not.
Should a restaurants/car services/cleaning services, etc. leave menus or business cards or whatever, in your lobby, and you don’t want them, you can have the city ticket the offenders. Just collect and mail the ads into:

My thanks to the efficient and pleasant Constituent Representative Sandra Ramos for her help!
I don’t know how much the ticket is. It’s more the principle of the thing. I get menus from a certain Japanese restaurant a few times a week. I am certain if they weren’t so persistent in their littering I’d probably pay little mind. But too much! Basta! Just because someone is the building orders food from you, or the lobby door is unlocked, doesn’t give you the right to litter the place up!”
