City's Cleanup Corps works to tidy up streets of Brooklyn in Ida's wake
Parts of Brooklyn got a deep cleaning this week thanks to the city Cleanup Corps, who were hard at work refreshing the streets and continuing the war on trash.
The program was set up this spring by the mayor’s office. Officials say members of the corps went around neighborhoods assisting residents with cleanup after Hurricane Ida.
They were joined by Councilmember Justin Brannan who represents the district and the city’s senior advisor for recovery--thanking them for their important work to make the city a better place.
The program aims to provide 10,000 jobs to city residents, with flexible hours and the opportunity to grow in your chosen career field.
Crews will be posted in Dyker Heights until the end of the week before they move on to focus on another area.
