Uptown Grand Central’s Clean Team has been doing an amazing job in keeping the area around Park/Lex and 125th Street tidy. But now, this funding is being threatened!
Now that the City just passed its next budget, we’ve heard that the Corps’ time with us will end June 30. The CCC has put thousands of people to work in cleaning and greening across the city, as part of COVID recovery — but its funding has now been cut to a fraction of last year’s.
We’ve been hearing from longtime residents and small businesses that it’s been decades since they’ve seen East 125 looking this good.
You’re looking at about a third of our City Cleanup Corps members — a.k.a. Jason, Bryan, Christian, Deja, Nyaja and Tiereecha.
They joined our Positive Workforce Clean Team last fall to be aforce multiplier here along East 125th Street, increasing our Clean Team size from 5 to 40 people — and have been keeping our sidewalks cleaner than ever before.
You can sign-up for an in-person Rat Academy now.
DOHMH will be raffling off rodent-resistant garbage bins and if you are interested in attending, please visit the rat academy website for more information on upcoming Rat Academy events.
