In the weeks to come, there’ll be more crews picking up trash in downtown lanes: seven nights a week, up from four. Crews will be checking in on lanes citywide five days a week, up from three.
Street sweepers will be out 250 hours a week — up from 150 currently — and a new pilot project is being launched to cut down on the city’s cigarette butt mess. And the city is even testing surveillance cameras at dumping hot spots.
There will also be 300 more litter cans — and they’ll be bigger.
