PLG Among the Worst Recylers in Brooklyn
The Department of Sanitation has published a list of the best and worst neighborhoods for recycling throughout the city and PLG falls near the bottom of the list. This is especially unimpressive, since Brooklyn is fourth among the boroughs.
Bay Ridge is the greenest Brooklyn neighborhood while Brownsville is throwing away the most of its recyclables. PLG is among a cluster of central Brooklyn neighborhoods. Laurel was right to call out the unnamed "neighborhood leaders" mentioned in the article who blame the "lack of facilities" in the area for their constituents' poor showing on Nostrand Park, a Crown Heights blog. What facilities do you need? The Department of Sanitation comes to you!
