Hoboken Trash Bins: Still not enough
Help us keep Hoboken clean
Bumping this post from earlier in the year – and an ongoing concern for Hoboken residents: There are simply not enough trash bins in heavily trafficked areas of town.
Residents still complain that they can go blocks without finding a receptacle. The problem is – that while many of us are responsible and won’t throw rubbish like bottles, pizza plates and other common refuse on the ground – the lazy (and drunk) people cannot be bothered with holding on to these items for more than a block, so they’ll find any spot to get rid of it.
Including this lamp post right across the street from City Hall.
Is it that hard?

Not enough of them in Hoboken!
A couple readers were curious enough to ask about the trash can from the Annette’s Beauty Salon post from earlier today… wanting to know what the sign said – and it’s all about the dog poop, of course!
While I personally have no problem with people *who tie the bags up* using any trash can – I’m sure there are many that just dump the smelly, leaky open poop bags in any bin they can find. This, however, wouldn’t be an issue if you didn’t have to walk a mile between city trash bins.
Then again, if you want more receptacles in town – you’d probably also receive a big tax increase as well.
