Trash Clash

We haven't been keeping a close on the Upper East Side's trash station war (we can only cover so many towers o' garbage), but today's Times has an overview of the story's twists and turns. Where it is now: in the middle of several lawsuits arguing that the economically disadvantaged residents living in that particular UES microhood shouldn't have to also deal with a sanitation station. Opponents are fighting back with the stat that Yorkville's median household income is $91,000, and putting a trash station in this 'hood as well as poorer ones is only fair. [NYT; previously]
