B.P Molinaro applauds his ‘Clean Team’ and Staten Islanders on spring cleaning campaign
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Borough President James P. Molinaro today announced that scores of public areas have been cleared by his “Clean Team” since Borough Hall kicked off its Islandwide “Spring Cleaning” campaign two weeks ago.
On March 30th, Molinaro launched this year’s spring cleaning with a clean-up of the Clove Lake public parking lot, where the Borough President’s “Clean Team” cleared the lot of broken pavement and other debris.
Since then, the “Clean Team” -- comprised of Borough Hall staffers and Arthur Kill Correctional Facility inmates – has completed dozens of clean-ups of parks, cemeteries, roadsides and City-owned lots that were recommended by Community Boards, Borough Hall staffers, and callers to the Borough President’s Helpline.
In the coming weeks, the “Clean Team” will be tackling several unsightly exits off of the Staten Island Expressway, including Victory Boulevard, Slosson Avenue, and Lily Pond Avenue.
“I couldn’t be more pleased with the success of my Clean Team,” said Molinaro. “I would also like to thank our residents who appear to be heeding the call of our Spring Cleaning Campaign. I see the difference as I travel around our Borough. Working together, we are maintaining Staten Island’s reputation as the cleanest and greenest Borough in New York City.”
Residents requesting trash clean-ups or graffiti removal can contact the Borough President’s Helpline at (718) 816-2000. The Helpline will record the complaints and put them on a list for future clean-ups
