wow that stinks

For one reason or another, garbage trucks refused to pick up garbage at the Montauk Post Office for the past few weeks. As a matter of fact, their last visit was in late September! If that sounds gross, it's because it is gross. Says an onlooker, "The pile has attracted rats" and "seagulls have torn through the black plastic bags. Weekend visitors ... have also taken to dumping their garbage at the site." According to the EH Star, an accounting error, which has since been remedied, caused the stink-fest. [EH Star]
