Do drunks need more trash cans?

Hoboken drunks leave bottles outside Maxwell’s Bar

Today’s Hoboken Drunk Bread Crumbs entry is a bit of a “toss up.”

Sure, it’s yet another piece of evidence (outside of Maxwell’s) that documents how inconsiderate stumbling drunks are in our city as they ramble from place to place. But I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt this time. One complaint that’s been around for a while is that Hoboken doesn’t quite have enough public trash cans on street corners. Often, you may have to walk several blocks before you find one.

Maybe if we had more bins, there’d be less street trash?

    The increasing need to drink and be drunk is a sign of the times. A way to hide from the harsh reality we live in. The beginning of the end, get used to it.

    I don’t care how far they have to walk, there’s no excuse for tossing a bottle onto the ground. They’re just pigs, but since Hoboken is already one of the filthiest places anywhere when it comes to trash being thrown everywhere, I guess they feel entitled. Even in NYC you’d never see this.

    comments like Mitch’s – that Hoboken is one of the filthiest places anywhere – make me laugh out loud.

    I do wonder what the small bubble you live in looks like. but considering this site’s tendency to gripe about the most trivial aspects imaginable, you seem to be in the right place.

    how about you consider a move to somewhere cleaner? say, the middle of nowhere, perhaps? this is a city. get over it.

    somebody call a WAAAAAMBULANCE.

      Most cities pick up their trash, asswipe. NYC is cleaner than Hoboken, that was my point. But you’re obviously too stupid to know that ’cause you probably never get out of the projects.[quote comment=”216178″]comments like Mitch’s – that Hoboken is one of the filthiest places anywhere – make me laugh out loud.I do wonder what the small bubble you live in looks like. but considering this site’s tendency to gripe about the most trivial aspects imaginable, you seem to be in the right place.how about you consider a move to somewhere cleaner? say, the middle of nowhere, perhaps? this is a city. get over it.somebody call a WAAAAAMBULANCE.[/quote]

        “NYC is cleaner than Hoboken”

        Hmmm, I would love to see the source you used for that statement.

        I actually agree with that for the most part. I hardly ever see piles of dog crap in NYC, but this weekend in Hoboken there was a GIANT mount on nearly every block of 1st Street from Jackson to Washington.[quote comment=”216194″]“NYC is cleaner than Hoboken”Hmmm, I would love to see the source you used for that statement.[/quote]

      • Mitch Ultimato says:

        Yup, there’s a tree in front of my house and nearly every day I find a pile of it either in the dirt around the tree or right on the sidewalk. If you’re too much of a pig to clean it up, what’s so hard about at least moving your dog into the street so people are less likely to step on it? ANd don’t even get me started on smokers. Sorry if quality of life means nothing to some people, but I like to think we’re a little more civilized than that and understand that throwing garbage all over the place because you’re too damn lazy to wait till you find a trash can is just lame.

        My source is my eyes. Look at the ground when you walk around Hoboken. Garbage everywhere. Then do the same thing next time you get off the PATH train–hardly any. And as Hometeam said, no dog crap in the city–people actually pick it up. And trash cans on every block. Maybe if you go into certain parts of Brooklyn or Queens or whatever it’s not like that but most of the streets in Manhattan that I see, whether uptown, midtown or downtown, aren’t nearly as filled with litter as any street you choose in Hoboken. Anyway, no point arguing this–you’re probably the type that thinks nothing of throwing your wrapper on the sidewalk even if there is a trash can on the corner.[quote comment=”216194″]“NYC is cleaner than Hoboken”Hmmm, I would love to see the source you used for that statement.[/quote]

        The drunks they come to Hoboken would never toss garbage where they live, the best is this past Saturday night someone came into my gate sat down and threw up and left, most of the time they just throw bottles and wraps in the gate. Since 7/11 came to 5th st. the pizza box is too heavy to put in the garbage, they just leave it where ever.

    • WashingtonStreeter says:

      Contristo nailed it on all points. Cities are dirty. Hoboken is actually quite clean compared to surrounding places. Huge parts of Jersey City are terrible as far as trash on the streets.

      As for the this site complaining about EVERYTHING, you could not be more right. There are complaint articles about not enough refuse containers. The City installed recycle bins and the site complained that there were bags in the bins so the City wasn’t complying with its own recycling rules. How about just appreciating that they did something positive? (I will not even go into the constant stream of low carb material)

      Also, Mitch, disagreeing with you does not make someone stupid or mean that they live in the projects.

    Also, why do the garbage cans on 1st move or disappear on a daily basis? And when they are their, their placement makes no sense(ie, 2 on the same block/same side and then none for 4 blocks)
