Residents at the condominiums at the Robert Scarano-designed 59, 61 and 63 Conselyea Street in Williamsburg say they don’t have any space to bring their garbage and that they’ve been fined for erecting their own trash depositories on sidewalks without permits, DNAinfo reported.

Building resident Penny Stankiewicz told DNAinfo that Scarano neglected to take notice of the city’s rule for residents not to leave garbage on the street on days when pick-up is not scheduled. Scarano declined DNAinfo’s request for comment.

The Real Deal previously has previously noted that Scarano was forbidden from filing documents to the Department of Buildings over accusations that the architect had knowingly made false statements in DOB filings for three Williamsburg properties.

As for the garbage issue, Community Board 1 members said the problem is all around the neighborhood. Some even said that it should be the responsibility of developers to provide receptacles.”If you’re going to do a big construction project it should be asked, ‘Where do you put trash?'” board member Ryan Kuonen told DNAinfo.
