NEW CASTLE, N.Y. - Many holiday tips being left out for sanitation workers in New Castle are likely being stolen, according to New Castle Police.
During the holiday season it is common to see residents affix gifts or tips to garbage cans as a token of appreciation for sanitation workers. Some of those gifts, however, have reportedly not been reaching the intended recipients.
"New Castle Police are receiving reports from residents that envelopes and packages which had been affixed to trash containers are being taken by unknown persons," said Lt. Dan Cannon.
Police recommend that residents wanting to leave gifts for service workers instead make arrangements to present the gift in person. They also request that anyone who observes suspicious activity report it to police at ( 914) 238-4422.
