Spring Cleaning by Sanitation Commissioner John J. Doherty

Spring is the traditional time of the year for planting, weeding and sprucing up our city. It is also the time when Keep America Beautiful (KAB) holds its April event in Times Square to kickoff the Great American Cleanup™, which runs March 1st through May 31st. Keep New York City Beautiful—a KAB affiliate—will join in to ensure that as nature reawakens and redecorates our streets and parks with green leaves and new buds, the city will be sparkling clean to celebrate the new season.

It is important to keep in mind that in spite of the tireless efforts of the dedicated men and women of Sanitation, keeping a city the size of New York clean requires everybody’s help, cooperation and …participation!

Here’s how you can help keep our streets and sidewalks clean, and avoid fines:

Springtime is a good time to clean up our communities. We encourage New Yorkers to organize and participate in cleanup and beautification projects.  The Department of Sanitation can help.  Our Tool Loan Program provides cleaning tools, absolutely free of charge, to volunteers from community groups, civic, block and merchants associations, etc.  Brooms, shovels and rakes are available at our tool depots.  These tools are available in short-term loans. The Department donates gloves and bags.

Go to the Department’s website, at www.nyc.gov/sanitation, and click on “Keep NYC Beautiful,” then click again on “New York City Department of Sanitation – Cleanup Tool Loan Program.” Our website provides an overview of the program, as well as contact information to help you determine the number and kind of tools needed for your particular event and how to reserve them.

Remember: Reserve your tools early so that the Department can accommodate the needs of your group.

You’ll now celebrate the new season with the pride that comes from contributing to your own community. I think that after such a cold, harsh winter, we’re all more than ready to enjoy the warm, sunny days of spring.

Good luck with your cleanup, and thank you for helping us keep New York City clean, green and beautiful!
