By BRIAN KATES New York generates about 30.000 tons of garbage every day more than any other city in the world, more than London and Tokyo combined. And as anyone who lives here knows, more than a fair share of it winds up on our sidewalks and on our streets. It's the Sanitation Department's job to pick it up. But like so many other agencies in the city it has fallen victim to the budget crunch. Today there are simply not enough men or machines A woman who remembers when men cleaned the streets with brooms ts swept back in time by sx Jbtis in Jackson Heights. Page 16. to do the job. The Sanitation Department needs our help. And one of the best ways to help aside from not littering is to finger those who do. Let your landlord and local merchants know that you are working for a clean New York and that you expect them to comply with city health and sanitation codes. Violators of the Health Code are subject to summonses to Criminal Court with fines of up to $100. In flagrant cases, fines can be as high as S300. a year in jail or both. Here is a brief digest of the key sections of the city's anti-grime laws: Sidewalks and Streets Sidewalks must be kept clean at all times. The responsibility rests with those whose properties face on them. Dirt and litter must not be swept from the sidewalk into street gutters, but must be put into suitable garbage cans for pickup by the Sanitation Department or by private carters. Littering It is illegal for anyone to litter, sweep or throw any material into any public street or place, including into airshafts. areaways. courtyards or vacant lots. It is also against the law for an employer to allow his employes to litter while under his control-Vacant lots An owner, lessee or manager of a vacant lot is responsible for keeping it free of rubbish, water or "offensive material." Spilling from trucks Xo person in Hikers guards end wildcat walkout By BERNARD RABIN and JERRY SCHMETTERER An agreement to end a wildcat strike by 1,300 correction officers on Rikers Island was reached last night by their union and the city Correction Department, ending a long-simmering dispute over enforced overtime and working conditions in the city's jails. The agreement, announced at 9 p.m. by Commissioner William Ciuros and Phillip Seelig, president of ten Correction Officers Benevolent Association, came after a day of negotiations. It lifts suspension orders levied against 602 guards. The agreement also ends the forced nine-hour work day for guards and a rule that limited overtime for veterans with more than 14 years' service. The rule was designed to restrict the size of a retiring guard's pension. The department also agreea to implement the four-days-on, two-days-off work rotation agreed to in the contract that started July 1. A committee composed t)f Deputy Mayor Herbert Sturz and, JJjS restrict Court Judge Morris Lasker and others JT will review the department's manpower problems and make a decision about the union's contention that the 3.200-mem-ber service is 1,000 members short The agreement climaxed a chaotic day at Rikers and in courts in Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Bronx that began shortly after 5 a.m. when a group of 18 guards refused to work.

The job action quickly spread and 602 guards at Rikers and the Queens House of Detention were suspended by Ciuros. Police on alert There were no reports of violent incidents, although there were several mattress fires set by inmates. Police dispatched a helicopter and launched a patrol boat to the island prison to guard against possible escape attempts. Seelig, who recently ousted Richard Basoa after campaigning on a militant platform, charged the strike erupted because "We've lost control of our jails." He said working conditions for his men. including overtime toataling up to 100 hours a week, had brought the jails to "the brink of anarchy." The new nine-hour work rule was imposed after the Legal Aid Society began a court action to force more recreation time for inmates at night The extra hour meant that inmates would be locked up at 11 p.m. rather than 10 p.m. Seelig said that he had warned Ciuros that if the rule was imposed a jcb action might result. f BE AN 0T APPLE Ly POLISHER A of control of a vehicle shall pemrt ary litter or other material to scaner, crop or spill from it Refase eeataiaers AH containers must be in good condition.

The commission also okd a t-mm ridership plan from LaGuanLa Airport to three zones in Manhattan, and is considering a limited ban on cab cruising in a section of midtown.

Commission Chairman Turoff would-' n't flatly guarantee that the initial fare would revert back to 75 cents after Dec. 31. The commission coupled the increase with a financial study and a hearing on the industry to be conducted over the next six months, after which another decision on the fuel surcharge will be made. It was learned also that as an energy-saving measure, the commission is considering plans to have cabs pick up passengers at designated taxi stands only from 11 a m to 3 p.m. in an area bounded by 47th and 57th Sts. from Third to Fifth Aves. 70 on 2 ferries lost Jakarta.
