Operation Clean Sweep is the program that Borough President James Oddo has launched, in partnership with the Staten Island Chamber of Commerce, Northfield Bank, Shamrock Paints, Home Depot and Costco, to aid local business owners in keeping their storefronts clean. The goal of the program is to reduce litter and to help keep Staten Island clean.
The program is designed to help businesses – in accordance with the law- keep their storefronts – and 18 inches into the street – clean. The reality is that many businesses do not. By providing brooms and dustpans to businesses, it is the hope of the Borough President that these resources will make it easier for business owners to abide by the law. Those who join Operation Clean Sweep will pledge that they will clean in front of their stores every day to help keep Staten Island clean.
