Cuomo Wants National Guard to Pick Up New York’s Garbage


The National Guard has been filling in, in all sorts of ways, during the pandemic. Including doing things it wasn’t meant to do, like helping care for the nursing home patients whose death warrants Governor Cuomo signed when he forced nursing homes to accept over 6,000 infected coronavirus patients resulting in as many as 11,000 deaths.

But this is insulting, abusive, and just wrong.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says he is ready to send the National Guard into New York City to pick up the trash piling up on streets and sidewalks after complaints to his office about the garbage have mounted.

The economic fallout from the pandemic resulted in a $25 million cut from the Sanitation Department’s budget in July. That meant a 60% reduction in pickups of public trash baskets. Baskets were being emptied every day pre-pandemic, now that may happen only three times a week.

“Garbage piling up, literally, people saying there is an odiferous environment because of the garbage piling up,” said Cuomo. “I don’t know what’s going on in New York City. If they can’t do it, I have offered to send in the National Guard to help pick up the garbage.”
