Whether it's cleaning up around neglected properties (Brownsville has a lot of vacant land), assisting the business district along Pitkin with tree planting and horticulture or street cleaning, cleaning train stations on the main subway line in the area, painting over graffiti , helping our friends and partners at local community gardens, or coordinating with the Department of Sanitation, we're always trying to make sure that this work is helping improve neighborhood quality of life.
Whenever there is heavy snow, we focus our crews on important areas like bus stops and fire hydrants.

And in Brownville, just like the rest of the city, as we emerge from the deep freeze, lots of garbage that's coming out of the snow is all over the neighborhood too!
