Nick Marotta, an operations manager, empties a trash receptacle in Central Park, in Manhattan, Dec. 28, 2016. The unsightly large trash drums that once dotted Central Park are now gone, replaced with smaller cans that are emptied frequently. The program has been a big success, and electric carts are soon to replace the gas-powered collection carts. (Stephen Speranza/The New York Times) - XNYT181
