Students at Bronx Health Sciences High School in Co-op City are making a pedestrian walkway near their school a whole lot cleaner.
Students and faculty members tell News 12 they use the walkway daily. They say the overpass is covered in garbage and is kept in poor condition.
“We don't want to be living in a dirty environment. It's very disgusting. You don't want to be going around and seeing dirt like trash everywhere,” said one of the students.
The students came together to form a group called BHS Cares. They made garbage cans to leave on the walkway and clean them out during the school day.
“I couldn't be more proud of them. They are incredible students, scholars, but beyond that, they're just great human beings that want to make an impact on the world around them,” says Brian Artzt, the assistant principal at the school.
