Noisy garbage trucks

9/24/2008:

Yet another one of today’s Hoboken411 reader mail entries is about our “middle of the night” garbage pickups.

Would you rather have late night trash pickups to avoid traffic? Or should it be done in the morning after everyone leaves for work?

Loud trucks and loud drivers

Hoboken garbage trucks are noisy“I’ve been living in Hoboken for about a year and ½ and a few months ago purchased an apartment and I am living on Garden Street.

My bedroom windows are on Garden. What is up with the Garbage Trucks? Middle of the night garbage pick up 5 nights a weeks. I would think there has got to be noise ordinances. I don’t understand why pick up cannot be done during the day. Its crazy, loud trucks and loud drivers. I don’t think I will be here long. I am the only one who finds this annoying?”

Sleepless on Garden!

FYI – This is similar to a reader mail sent in almost two years ago:

DrDrool- I’m well aware of where Utica is vs the Adirondacks. What I was saying to Brady was that while I know NYC water comes from upstate NY, the water near Utica (which I thought was considered upstate) is gross. Not sure where it comes from, and I don’t really care. It’s gross. :mrgreen:[/quote]

yeah, but i mean the “Nestle” branded bottles. Poland Springs is mostly bottled in Maine i believe. I don’t know anything about Deer Park. If you look on the bottles of “Nestle” water it actually says something very close to “Bottled with tap water from Bethlehem, PA”

[quote comment=”107777″]Since you own your place you may want to consider installing new windows. I did so the noise reduction is unbelievable.[/quote]
I agree. We replaced five of our windows last year and both the noise reduction and energy savings are substantial. It was a small investment considering that we’ll likely be here for many more years. Otherwise, consider a sound machine. Some friends of ours in town have gotten so addicted to theirs for their Hoboken townhouse, that they have one in their LI beach house as well. (We enjoy hearing the real waves hitting the shore when we visit, and joke with them that they could hear the real thing too if they turned off their synthetic machine! I guess old habits die hard.)

I drink NYC tap water in the office. I hated the taste of the water upstate though. I filter that stuff.[/quote]

NYC tap water is the water from upstate NY. It comes down from the Adirondacks.[/quote]
Yes I know. But the system in the town I go to near Utica has some of the grossest water I’ve ever tasted.[/quote]

NY dosn’t get their water from anywhere close to utica. The city water supply system only goes about to 125 miles north and north west. Utica is another 100+ miles if you were a bird.
