Cleanliness is next to godliness
Trash is not an uncommon sight along New York City streets.
Neighbor across the city regularly organize clean-up projects. In Long Island City, one group helped clean up an area around Queens Plaza.
A website in Jamaica, Queens routinely calls on elected leaders and neighbors to pitch in and help.
NYC’s Department of Sanitation has more than 6,000 workers who collect 12,000 tons of trash and recycling every day. They also sweep the city’s 6,000 miles of streets and empty 25,000 corner litter baskets.
