    as an (anonymous) employee of a busy downtown restaurant, i think it is time to call public attention to the lack of recycling our businesses do.
    while i am working, i am forced to ignore my urge to separate recyclable materials and throw every single thing into the trash, despite how detrimental to the environment, nor how valuable to the city recyclables are (it COSTS money to get rid of waste; it MAKES money to recycle).
    i'd like to open this issue to call attention to the businesses that do not recycle, because if we as individuals go to great lengths to recycle in our own homes, then why should we continue to support businesses that do not regardless of why they should?

    also, i believe it is shameful, as well as utterly lazy and shortsighted for the city of new haven to not have a policy in place to reprimand businesses who do not recycle. it is almost 2011 and we can't as a collective of intelligent human beings realize that, for instance, when you recycle aluminum, it does not break down over time and is 100% recyclable? one can equals one can for the rest of eternity?

    despite the negative effect on my livelihood, i call for a boycott on businesses in new haven that do not recycle, until they begin. before you dine somewhere, ask if they recycle. if they do not, tell the manager that is why you refuse to spend your money there, but that you will return when they begin a recycling program.

    need i remind us all that this is the only earth we have???

    The lovely green, New Haven's front lawn -- open for all to come and enjoy -- is almost always a littered mess.
    I'm not saying we should arrest litters, but begin issuing tickets for littering. It's a small, quality-of-life step that can yield large results. Clean the Green, a small effort that can sow pride. We all -- even the thoughtless litterers -- feel better when the world around us isn't a filthy mess. And if the city won't crack down, we can do it ourselves; just carry a plastic grocery bag with you and pick up after you messy brothers and sisters when you get the chance. It's good exercise.

    A guy came over by the benches by the bus stop, dropped his pants and took a dump right next to the benches. Then he wiped him bum with paper towels and walked away. Please have some one clean up this stinky, nasty mess!

    At the corner of Elm and College, there is a right turning lane that intersects with the bike lane. It is difficult for cars to see bikes as they turn, which has resulted in several accidents. Technically, both have the right of way here, so it is incredibly dangerous for both cyclists and drivers. Please fix this issue before more people get hurt.

    Perhaps this could inspire a solution? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlApbxLz6pA

    The sidewalk and street in front of this metal dump is always dirty and full of nails, shrapnel and metal pieces making it very dangerous when biking. I have to bike in the middle of chapel street around that area causing cars to swerve around me and cross the double yellow lines. This company should be fined for littering and should clean up Chapel street around them. Finally, there are often illegally parked trucks and pickups on the sidewalk without proper lights or safety signs causing delays in traffic and danger to pedestrians.

    Traffic calming, like Ped refuge islands similar to those installed on Edwards St are needed before the next speeding driver flips his car and kills 20 people.

    851-881 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green

    Three times in the last month, I've seen a group of teenagers riding around on scooters recklessly and illegally. None of the scooters have license plates, and one of the looks like the plate bracket itself was broken off -- leading me to suspect they were stolen. The kids dodge in and out of traffic, up onto sidewalks, and dive through red lights.

    Given how many cars I see stopped for speeding or other minor traffic infractions, I'm amazed that this reckless theft and endangerment doesn't seem to concern the police. I understand it would hard to catch these kids -- they would scatter in 4 different directions if they saw a cop -- but doesn't the law apply to them too?

    A wild turkey was wandering around the green on 4/28 and 4/29. I don't know how it got there. It probably should be taken away, the city is no place for a turkey.

    People always ask me where the free shuttle goes. It would be easier to find if there was a green line painted in the street.

    Trolley tracks make it easy to find trolleys. This could work the same way.
