Beginning January 1, the Industrial BID increased its fleet of trash collection trucks to 8 to better serve our district. The BID maintenance team is working harder than ever, as the volume of sidewalk trash continues to rise. This quarter we collected 811 tons of trash. That represents a 25% increase compared with the same quarter in 2022, and in 2022 we collected 22% more trash than in 2021. This staggering statistic clearly demonstrates the BID’s consistent role in protecting our area from a dangerous public health threat. In this first quarter alone we have already collected 30% of our 2022 total. Our team also painted over 70,000sf of graffiti and removed more than 12,000sf of weeds from sidewalks.
