HOBOKEN - Trash continues to line the streets of Hoboken more than two weeks after Superstorm Sandy hit.

Officials say most of the trash is coming from basement apartments that were damaged during Sandy.

Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer says she is concerned that owners and renters of basement apartments won't get disaster relief aid. She says that insurance companies and even FEMA often treat basement apartments like basements in homes.

Zimmer says she is pushing for policy changes to make things more fair in urban areas like Hoboken, which has thousands of basement apartments.

A city-wide cleanup is scheduled on Sunday in Hobooken.
