As a concerned resident of Astoria Queens I would like to bring your attention the health threatening and dangerous issues affecting our community.
1. Berry Fresh Farm Inc., located between Ditmars blvd. and 23rd. Ave. in Astoria Queens.
This supermarket, while providing an import resource to the community has been severely negligent in maintaining clean and safe garbage disposal practices on 43rd. Street between Ditmars Blvd. and 23rd. Ave. Over the years their business has grown and prospered. What has also grown is their volume of garbage and lack of community responsibility. I am submitting recent photos (link above) taken over a period of time that demonstrate the practice of substantially overfilling their small, few and broken garbage receptacles. The garbage carting company should also be held responsible and should refuse to remove their garbage if it overflows the top of the receptacle. By not doing so, when the garbage is picked up, the substantial overflow lands all over the sidewalk next to the entrance of resident
