Residents representing various downtown Boston neighborhood associations (covering the North End, South End and Beacon Hill) will soon be meeting with representatives from the Public Works Department and the CEO of Sunrise Scavenger, Joe Lombardi, to talk about the waste management / trash removal / recycling removal environment in our neighborhoods.
As you may know, Sunrise Scavenger took over the contract for all downtown Boston neighborhoods in July 2014. Following up on a series of meetings we held prior to the current contract going into effect, the upcoming meeting will cover trash and recycle pick-up and timing, specific neighborhood issues, what we can do to improve the overall trash management environment and in general continue our helpful dialogue with the Public Works Department on this issue.
It would be especially helpful to have reactions / comments / suggestions from North End residents. We are interested in hearing about what is going well, what has improved since the new contractor started and what areas still require some work / focus / improvement. We would appreciate candid, constructive comments from North End residents that we can pass along to our friends in the Public Works Department, as well as the contractor.
Vote in the poll above and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. If there are specific issues, please provide location and other data that will help to identify where the issues are occurring.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
North End Public Safety Committee Chair
