Bronx residents leery about post-Sandy trash plan

LOCUST POINT - Mayor Bloomberg announced today that garbage cleanup is being reduced in areas not heavily impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

Locust Point residents say sanitation crews were constantly on the prowl in their neighborhood, picking up debris after the storm. And while neighbors say crews were stellar in helping clean the area, they still need all the help they can get.

With crews now focusing on more devastated communities, officials say trash collection may be reduced to two or three days a week until further notice.
