Councilman Eric Ulrich, fourth from right, hosted a spring community cleanup last Saturday in partnership with the city Department of Sanitation.
Joined by members of his staff, the Queens Explorers, auxiliary officers from the NYPD 106th Precinct and community leaders, the initiative targeted trash- and graffiti-prone areas in Ozone Park and Centreville. The materials for the cleanup efforts were provided by the DSNY.
Volunteers tackled some of the most problematic locations in the district, including Liberty Avenue; 101st Avenue; 114th Place and North Conduit Avenue; and Centreville Street and Huron Street. By the end, they had filled dozens of garbage bags and painted over several graffiti hot spots.
