Sunnyside just received a gift that will help keep its streets shining and clean.

The Sunnyside Shines Business Improvement District announced Tuesday afternoon that the neighborhood had received 15 new trash receptacles down sidewalks on Queens Boulevard and Greenpoint Avenue.

The new trash cans, which were installed over the weekend, were fully funded by Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer and will be serviced daily by the Sunnyside Shines maintenance team.

“We thank Majority Leader Van Bramer for his dedication to beautifying Sunnyside’s commercial district,” said Rachel Thieme, Sunnyside Shines executive director. “These trash receptacles are a big upgrade for the district and provide a more functional and attractive option to manage trash collection on our busy streets.”

The new receptacles are made of fabricated steel and painted black. They replaced broken cans that no longer closed or locked, which were taken away by the Department of Sanitation.
