MTA tests waste reduction with fewer trash cans

BROOKLYN - The MTA says it can't keep up with the trash at subway stations and is trying to reduce waste with fewer cans.

Transit authority officials say they're experimenting with the plan at two stations in Queens and Manhattan first. They hope that without garbage cans, straphangers will be forced to take their trash above ground.

If it's a success, the initiative could expand, but Brooklyn riders say they hope that doesn't happen.
