Participating in a local clean-up

Assemblyman William Colton and Special Assistant Priscilla Consolo are planning a community clean-up to coincide with the annual Earth Day celebration. The clean-up will take place at 29 Bay 25th Street on Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m.  to 1 p.m.

This will be the Colton’s fourth neighborhood clean-up campaign. A large youth participation is expected as last year over 440 students from local schools, organizations and community groups took part. The youth swept streets and avenues, collected garbage and debris and helped haul it to various Department of Sanitation collection points.

For more information contact: Mark Treyger (718) 866-6090 or Carmine Santa Maria (718) 825-4400.

What do you think readers, will you bring your family this Earth Day to clean up our streets?
