A new program being launched on Monday will focus on cleaning up neglected parts of New York City.
“We're investing more than $14 million this fiscal year alone to participate in the largest cleanup effort in decades,” Mayor Eric Adams said.
The program will send more Sanitation Department workers into parts of the five boroughs that are in need of a cleanup. Another 200 workers are being hired and additional cameras are being installed to crackdown on illegal dumping.
“This is an important initiative that we are taking seriously in every level of agencies that are responding to the issues that we are facing around cleaning in this city,” Adams said.
