Nominate a Street in the North Brooklyn IBZ for Clean-Up

Evergreen and the Newtown Creek Alliance are once again coming together this Spring to help clean-up around the North Brooklyn IBZ and the Newtown Creek. Many blocks in the IBZ suffer from perpetual littering and illegal dumping. Besides being unsightly, unpleasant, and obstructing operations, these conditions also lead to increased water pollution as street drains lead directly to our beloved creek!

You can help us target the blocks most in need by nominating a street, intersection, or street end that you think needs the most attention! And, you can join us in cleaning it up! Once we receive the nominations, we will choose a spot and date for the clean-up that everyone is welcome to join in for!

All volunteers and staff are required to wear a mask and practice safe social distancing during the event. We will provide sanitized gloves, tools, and maintenance guidance – no experience required. We recommend wearing weather-appropriate clothes and sturdy shoes. More details to follow.

For now, please send us your nominations here!

If you have any questions please contact Natalie Vichnevsky.
