Related Management sent the following message to some residents of its Southtown Riverwalk Buildings:
Dear Resident:Yesterday, I asked Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) President Charlene Indelicato:
We have been notified by the NYC Department of Sanitation that they are having issues with their AVAC system, which performs the garbage removal for the residents of Roosevelt Island. Currently the Department of Sanitation is scheduling manual garbage pick up collections until further notice as they work to rectify the issue.
Residents are encouraged to try to refrain from filling the compactor rooms with garbage, unless absolutely necessary. Please report unsanitary or overcrowded conditions to the concierge staff as we work together to deal with this situation.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation and we will bring you more information regarding this matter as it becomes available. We respectfully request that you adhere to the guidelines listed above.
Is there any problem with the AVAC garbage system? I have been receiving reports from residents of Riverwalk Southtown buildings that AVAC is out of service and that the Sanitation Department will be picking up garbage by trucks.Shortly thereafter RIOC issued the following advisory:
Any statement from RIOC on the AVAC problem? Is the AVAC problem limited to Southtown?
Please be advised that the AVAC system is down for repairs on the East side of the Island. The NYC sanitation department will be performing trash pickup for the affected buildings until the issue is resolved.Reported in 2010 on a previous shutdown of the AVAC system due to something being stuck in the pipe and more on the Roosevelt Island AVAC system here.
