The Greater Port Washington Business Improvement District (BID) teamed up with Spectrum Designs Foundation to “Keep Port Clean.” These two local nonprofit groups will partner up from April through October to help battle the litter problem within the district.
The premise of the campaign is to ensure that the commercial corridor is vibrant and welcoming. The BID asks that community members say something if they see anyone littering. Businesses are asked to clean in front of their business every day. The first time the “Keep Port Clean” crew cleans in front of a business, they will leave behind a flier to remind the business of their responsibilities. The town code states each business is responsible for cleaning in front of their business (sidewalk and tree bed) and 18” into the street.
