The Green Team Keeping North Hempstead Clean

North Hempstead, NY—Supervisor Jon Kaiman and the Town Board announced that North Hempstead’s Green Team has picked up 5,980 pounds of litter off Town streets in 2010 and from January to March 2011 about 400 pounds. The “Green Team” was created in 2005 in an effort to help keep the character of the Town’s downtown areas free from debris and litter.

“It is important that the Town help maintain and support the beatification of our streets and maintain the character of our downtowns,” commented Supervisor Kaiman. “The Town wants to ensure our streets are free of litter which will help to improve the quality of life of our residents.”

To get a hold of the Green Team, residents can simply call 311 and the Town will dispatch a team to take care of the reported litter. If the litter is located on a Nassau County, State or village road, 311 will provide residents with the appropriate contact information as well as alert the Town’s Office of Intermunicipal Coordination to report the issue to the jurisdiction directly.

“This effort does not diminish the responsibility of store owners and residents to maintain the sidewalk area in front of their properties. The goal is to compliment their efforts in order to keep our community clean and green,” added Supervisor Kaiman.

For more information on the Green Team please call 311.
