Unfortunately, the way to deal with this is as explain in the following from 0:14 to 0:22


Just meet your sanitation workers and take care of them.

We had garbage that they weren't taking for a few weeks  (maybe long florescent bulbs, I can't remember) after numerous calls to 311 to no avail we just walked to the corner and put it in the city garbage can
Careful with doing that.  If you put 'personal' garbage in city pails you can get a ticket. L'maase what that means is, be sure nothing in the garbage has your address or other way to identify you.

Threads like these make me so thankful that I live in Nassau county. Not only do the sanitation workers come 2-3 times a week (alternating weeks), and not only do they come to the side or back of the house to get your garbage cans, they also return the empty garbage cans from where they got it from. And the best part is that don't have to separate recycling stuff (although for those that want to, they could).
And don't start telling me about high taxes. My taxes are down to ~5k/year at this point (I fight it each year and it goes down). People in Brooklyn have about the same (so I'm told).

+1 but are you aware of the new proposed "ticket fee" of $105 on any parking or moving violation ticket which i s not waived even if you're found not guilty.
As for your point about taxes, we also don't pay city income tax which is about 3% if you make over 90k a year. Which makes up for (or comes close to) the diffrence in property taxes.

Nassau county was so great I got a ticket for branches on my lawn after a storm. And the taxes were a helluva lot more than 5k.

My guess is that the ticket was from an incorporated Town (Lawrence and cedarhurst I think). Or you were in a different sanitation district maybe.

I guess I should consider myself lucky. I never separate garbage and never get a ticket for it. Everything goes in the alley behind my house. Pickup is 3x a week, but occasionally they will be selective and leave behind some, that's why we need to grease the wheels sometimes.
