Malliotakis Thanks Volunteers For Sunday Cleanup

Volunteers clean near the intersection of Hylan Blvd. and Justin Ave.

A much-needed Spring cleaning was accomplished yesterday along Hylan Boulevard adjacent to Great Kills Park. Volunteers spent the better part of their Sunday with trash bags and pickers cleaning up the brush alongside the roadway, where refuse has accumulated due to the carelessness of passing motorists. “This community is extremely fortunate to have organizations like the Bay Terrace Beautification Association and the Natural Resources Protection Association to take on problems like this. I thank and commend all of the volunteers who helped out. It was such a beautiful day, and they chose to spend it picking up the trash that others have carelessly left behind,” said Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis (R,C,I-East Shore). “We are begging people who drive along this part of Hylan to not toss their garbage out the window. Don’t let the hard work of these great volunteers go to waste.” The cleanup was jointly organized by Assemblywoman Malliotakis’s office, National Parks Service, NYC Parks, the Bay Terrace Beautification Association, and the Natural Resources Protection Association.
