Bronx recycling center cleans up its act

Bronx residents on East 165 Street say they can finally take a deep breath of fresh air after the local recycling center WE CAN has finally cleaned up its piles of trash.

WE CAN had been piling bags of rotting recycling products in front of its facilities that neighbors say caused rat problems. Saturday the non-profit group removed the black and white filled garbage bags, making its exterior visible.

While some residents say the problems caused by the center have been fixed, others claim they are still bugged by a rodent and insect problem.Related Story
