The streets of northeast Queens will hopefully be cleaner than before, thanks to funding allocations by one New York City Council member.

Using $10,000 allocated by the New York City Department of Sanitation, Councilman Paul Vallone provided 30 brand-new waste bins to areas of WhitestoneBaysideCollege Point and Little Neck.

According to Vallone’s press release, the locations for these new waste baskets include five bins in Whitestone Village along the 150th Street corridor; five containers on Bell Boulevard between Northern Boulevard and 33rd Avenue; five cans around the College Point Boulevard corridor; and eight more by Northern Boulevard between 168th Street and Little Neck Parkway.

“These new trash receptacles will go a long way towards improving the cleanliness of our community,” Councilman Vallone said in Tuesday’s news release. “By increasing their availability in commercial areas, people will be encouraged to use them and I look forward to seeing less trash littering our streets. Combined with the incredible work from the DOE fund, our streets have never been cleaner.”

Thus far, Vallone has provided over $30,000 for upgraded garbage and recycling bins throughout northeast Queens. He also allocated an additional $170,000 through the CleanUp NY Initiative for the DOE fund to provide street cleaning of commercial corridors in Whitestone and College Point.
