The Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District has installed fifteen new trash receptacles throughout sidewalks on Queens Boulevard and Greenpoint Avenue. The project was fully funded by Council Majority Leader Jimmy Van Bramer.
The new trash receptacles are made of fabricated steel and painted black. The receptacles are serviced daily by the Sunnyside Shines maintenance team and replace broken receptacles which no longer closed or locked. The new receptacles were installed over the weekend, with the broken cans hauled away by the NYC Department of Sanitation.
"We thank Majority Leader Van Bramer for his dedication to beautifying Sunnyside’s commercial district," said Sunnyside Shines executive director Rachel Thieme. "These trash receptacles are a big upgrade for the district and provide a more functional and attractive option to manage trash collection on our busy streets.”
