The city has launched a new initiative centered around being cleaner and greener.
Part of a new campaign called CleaNYC, the $4.2 million project includes an increased effort in removing graffiti from public and private buildings spanning 40 million square feet of space each year.
The Sanitation Department is sending seven teams every Saturday to clean an extra 100 miles of road along highway shoulders and ramps.
The city is also expanding Sunday trash pickup by 40 percent to accommodate heavy traffic neighborhoods.
