As previously reported, Streetplus took over as the Initiative’s contracted partner to provide supplemental sanitation services to the SoHo Broadway community in July and works daily to empty litter baskets, sweep up stray litter, and remove stickers and graffiti.
From July through October 2023, the Initiative’s outstanding Clean Team removed a total of 25,109 bags of trash and 5,103 incidents of graffiti and stickers from the neighborhood. Check out some sample before/after photos below of this visible impact:
In addition to our core service area along Broadway and the intersecting cross streets, the Initiative continues to provide sanitation services on Crosby and Mercer streets.
We are also continuing our Clean Curbs prototype containerized waste bin box pilot, which has kept over 500 bags of trash off the sidewalk on the east side of Broadway & Prince.
We are also thrilled to welcome new Clean Team Ambassador Nar Seye to the crew! We thank our Clean Teamfor their continued dedication to making SoHo Broadway a welcoming place to live, work, shop and explore. Check out Bronx News 12’s reporting on SoHo Broadway’s Clean Team and their importance for the neighborhood at large, featuring an interview with Clean Team Field Supervisor Cheikh Dieng.
Be sure to say hello next time you see our team in blue working their magic on the street!
