NY Daily News – A Queens community has established a plan to cope with the annual Orthodox Jewish pilgrimage — and the trash left in its wake.

Up to 25,000 Chabad-Lubavitch Jews are expected to gather in Cambria Heights this weekend to pay tribute at the grave of their leader, the Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson. The rebbe died June 12, 1994, but this Saturday marks the 18th anniversary of his passing under the Hebrew calendar.
