Cleaning Up Upper East Side with 284 New Large Trash Cans for Every Corner Purchased by Council Member Kallos

Kallos Promises New Large Cans For Every Corner to Clean Up the Upper East Side

New York, NY – Litter strewn sidewalks on the Upper East Side are about to get cleaner following an investment of $154,780 by Council Member Ben Kallos in 284 new large trash cans personally delivered by Sanitation Department Commissioner Kathryn Garcia. The new large trash cans are housed in a green metal case with a dome top and a small opening that prevents trash from spilling and has been reported to deter rodents.

“I am here to clean up the Upper East Side with larger trash cans on every corner that can prevent overflow and litter that spills onto the streets,” said Council Member Ben Kallos. “I promise a new large trash can on every corner that needs one to keep our streets clean. I encourage any resident whose corner needs a new trash can or even a second large trash can to reach out so we can clean up our neighborhood together.” 

This massive rollout followed an initial pilot that brought 38 large trash cans to hot spots with 27 large trash cans just for the East 86th Street commercial corridor. Council Member Kallos sought out to cover Second Avenue from 96th to 54th street to coincide with the opening of the Second Avenue Subway in 2017. Following the 2016 pilot resident reported reduced litter and rodents with requests for more cans from the East Sixties Neighborhood Association (ESNA), the East 72nd Street Neighborhood Association (E72NA), and the East 86th Street Association (E86NA). In response Council Member Kallos expanded from his original plan of covering Second Avenue to cover every corner that had a wire mesh trash can, providing 284 new large cans that cover 104 intersections in his district.

“We are pleased to work with Council Member Kallos to bring 284 new high-end litter baskets to these high trafficked areas,” said Sanitation Commissioner Kathryn Garcia. “In addition, we are thankful for his continuing support of the Department, and for helping us keep New York City clean.  Efforts between elected officials and the Sanitation Department - as well as our ongoing work with local merchants and residents - demonstrates how close partnerships can make a real difference in a neighborhood.”

“The East Sixties Neighborhood Association wishes to express its gratitude to Council Member Ben Kallos for the new large, colorful trash cans that are now prominent on the street corners of the East 60s. Soon, litter-free sidewalks will once again be the new normal in our neighborhood – a sure sign of a vibrant, reinvigorated community. Many thanks, Ben, from your friends in the East Sixties.,” said Barry Schneider, President of the East Sixties Neighborhood Association.

“Thank you, Ben Kallos!  This is a great development - with increased pedestrian traffic along the Second Avenue corridor due to the new Q stations, a trash can on every corner will go a long way in making it easier to keep our sidewalks clean,” said Valerie Mason, President of the East 72nd Street Neighborhood Association.

"The East 86th Street Association has long advocated for sanitation improvements in the area. We are thrilled by the announcement of 284 new receptacles blanketing the corners of the Upper East Side. The larger cans have greater capacity, prevent spillage, greatly reduce litter on the streets, and are far more vermin resistant. This marks a great improvement to the quality of life of Upper East Siders. Council Member Ben Kallos and Commissioner Garcia have been extraordinarily proactive and receptive to the concerns of the community and their actions are greatly appreciated",” said Andrew Fine, Board Member of the East 86th Street Association, who has worked with Council Member Kallos to secure additional pickups and merchants to adopt trash cans.
