A Clean Sweep in 2016
More and more people work, live and visit here every year. Our sanitation team works seven days a week to keep the Garment District looking its best.
In 2016 they collected 473.8 tons of trash in a whopping 85,767 trash bags. This herculean effort resulted in 100% scorecard ratings from the City for street and sidewalk cleanliness.
A lot more than garbage pickup goes into making sure the neighborhood looks as good as it can. Our sanitation crew also:
- painted 495 pieces of street furniture
- removed 2,134 stickers
- cleaned 640 instances of graffiti
- power washed 1,060 locations
- look fantastic in blue & green
We are very fortunate to have an amazing team that we could not do our job nearly as well without.
