CANARSIE - Homeowners on a Canarsie block want thousands of dollars in Department of Sanitation (DSNY) tickets trashed.

Bishop Humphrey Logan says a $300 ticket is one of many he?s received for dirty sidewalks and trash. However, Humphrey says the ticket was issued at 10:30 a.m. According to the DSNY?s rules, the ticket was issued outside of designated times for residential ticketing. Residents say workers have told them sanitation officials give them quotas to fill, a claim the department denies.

Residents can appeal tickets, but Logan says he?s still waiting for a response after making two calls. Homeowners say it?s unfair that the city sometimes fails to clean streets, but residents get ticketed for it. They also want nearby bodega owners to be proactive and put trash cans by their stores so wrappers don?t end up on the streets.
