Clean Streets Program
Our clean neighborhood communicates volumes about our community’s sense of pride, and affects the level of security and behaviors in Brooklyn Heights.
Our clean street ambassadors greet business owners and neighborhood residents with a warm smile and a helping hand 7 days a week and perform the following services:
Picking up debris, loose trash, cigarette butts, sediment and loose rock from sidewalks, alleys and street gutters.
Removing weeds from sidewalk cracks and building lines.
Cleaning graffiti immediately upon identification using the least invasive methods possible.
All sidewalks are washed on a schedule to maintain consistent levels of cleanliness, and spot washing is done to immediately address unsightly spills and stains.
Clearing paths in areas that fall outside of the city’s and property owners’ responsibility.
Painting light post, trash cans, tree pit guards and street furniture on a seasonal basis.
