Perhaps you’ve seen these signs popping up in a few stations around the city. If you have, you’ve probably seen them covered in graffiti to the tune of “ARE YOU FRICKIN KIDDING ME?” and “TAKING AWAY TRASH CANS TO PREVENT LITTER IS LIKE TAKING AWAY MEDICINE TO ELIMINATE GONORRHEA.” The MTA has been trying out this program to cut down on the amount of trash and rodents in subway stations by eliminating … trash cans. The MTA claims this counter-intuitive measure has worked in other cities. Starting Sept. 2, they’re expanding the program and getting rid of trash cans in two Brooklyn stations (they haven’t said which ones yet). So do you think this will work? Or are you just going to throw your trash on the tracks?
