What does litter have to do with the economy? Plenty, according to Carlo Scissura, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce.
“Clean streets are a catalyst for small business growth, ensuring that residents and visitors alike make walking these streets an enjoyable experience. Therefore, it is imperative that everyone work together to ensure the streets are clean and safe,” Scissura said.
Shoppers are more likely to patronize a commercial zone that has clean sidewalks and graffiti-free storefronts, Scissura said.
