In a bizarre turn of events, more than 500 pounds of pasta was dumped in the woods of Veterans Park last week. Community advocate Nina Jochnowitz shared photos of the noodle nightmare on Facebook, sparking curiosity and disbelief.
While it might seem like a freak occurrence, Nina says this pasta predicament sheds light on a larger issue - the lack of bulk garbage pick-up in the area. Financial constraints can stop folks from getting rid of their bulky trash the right way, leading some to sneakily and illegally dump their sh*t. The township even voted down a proposal to add bulk pick-up, which would've cost less than $90 per year on garbage bills.
Locals like Christopher Eskesen do their part to keep the waterways clean, but the trash keeps coming back. The police and Department of Public Works are now investigating the f*cking weird pasta dumping case.
