CleaNYC includes a number of efforts aimed at keeping communities clean:
Expanded graffiti removal and sidewalk power washing in commercial corridors citywide: The City will expand the Economic Development Corporation’s successful Graffiti-Free NYC Program and also add power washing of sidewalks in heavily trafficked commercial corridors in all five boroughs, including all Industrial Business Zones and other targeted corridors, such as Hylan Boulevard on Staten Island, Church Avenue in Brooklyn, the Downtown Flushing Transit Hub in Queens, Jerome-Gun Hill in the Bronx, Broadway on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, and 125th Street in Manhattan. Graffiti-Free NYC will remove graffiti from private and public structures, power wash sidewalks, and remove blight from street furniture. The new Graffiti-Free NYC trucks will be equipped with power inverters, allowing the equipment to run without using the engines or gas-powered generators.
Expanded Sunday and holiday litter basket service: New York City is the most popular walking city in the country, which also means it requires more attention to litter removal than most cities. The Department of Sanitation will expand Sunday and holiday litter basket collection by 40 percent, with a focus on heavily trafficked neighborhoods across the five boroughs, to ensure service on days when pedestrian traffic is often at its highest.
Expanded highway shoulder and ramp cleanup: Highway ramps are often the first impression many people have of the city, but they don’t always get the attention they deserve. Through expanded resources, the Department of Sanitation will be able to sweep approximately 100 additional miles per week, removing litter, dirt, leaves, millings and other debris.
In total, CleaNYC will cost $4.2 million in expense funds in Fiscal Year 2017, and $2.5 million in capital funds.

Instead cheap cameras against graffiti – pay for removing ? Owners of buildings should setup web-cameras and look for his buildings – not City !
