An Roslyn Heights resident has contacted The Roslyn News to express concern over the sanitation situation at the mall on Willis Avenue, one that houses both a CVS pharmacy an a Starbucks franchise.
The resident said that garbage cans were “overflowing” and that garbage was making its way on walkways and onto private properties surrounding the two stores.
A manager at Starbucks said that the sidewallks outside of that establishment are clean and are swept every morning. Garbage is placed in a dumpster and trash is picked up by crews from The Town of North Hempstead.
A manager at CVS said pretty much the same thing, namely that the pharmacy cleans the sidewalk every morning and takes the trash to the same dumpster. Shoppers admitted that with a Starbucks and a McDonald’s nearby, there is indeed trash circulating around the lots, but managers at both establishments pledge to keep their interiors and exteriors as clean as possible. “We’ll keep an extra eye n it [the garbage],” the Starbucks manager said.
