Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Neurontin, and are

drugs. These drugs may cause you to feel
uncomfortable and have a variety of harmful

A Bay Ridge councilman declared
a “war on trash” in his district earlier
this month, after allocating
nearly $300,000 in discretionary funding
to bridge a budget gap spurred by
“I really do believe a clean community
is a safe community, and a clean
and safe community is the foundation
for everything else,” said Councilmember
Justin Brannan, who represents
Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach
and Bensonhurst, at an Aug. 10 press
The initiative comes after the city’s
sanitation budgets underwent severe
cuts to fi ll holes amid the pandemic —
a decision that had an immediate impact
on the neighborhoods he represents,
Brannan said Tuesday.
“Budget cuts last year were brutal,”
he told members of the press outside of
his district offi ce. “The city had to fi ll
a $9 to 10 billion budget gap because of
COVID and the sanitation cuts were
Now, as the city continues to recover
from the coronavirus, the pol has allocated
funds not just to return regular
trash service from Before Times, but
also to make them more frequent and
effective than they were previously.
“I did everything I could to not only
restore the cuts but also to double down
on investments and garbage pickup in
this community,” Brannan said.
With the new funding, the trash receptacles
on street corners in his district
will be picked up twice a day, six
days a week, and a crew from the Association
of Community Employment
Programs is being contracted for sidewalk
sweeping fi ve days a week.
A special cleaning service will also
be introduced to the neighborhood, the
motorized litter patrol, who pinpoint
locations that need immediate cleaning
— areas that are not often on the
radar of traditional cleaning services.
The second-term councilman said
the improved trash services is the fi rst
step in showing the rest of the city that
his district is back for business, especially
by giving storefronts a helping
hand in keeping the front of their
“That’s what it’s all about, bringing
back our communities safe and clean
and strong, and that starts with keeping
our streets clean,” Brannan said.
“I think this is a great signal that we
are coming back, we are coming out of
this pandemic strong, and we are going
to make sure our streets stay clean
and that people take pride in their
Community Board 10’s district
manager applauded the councilman’s
push for the additional litter patrol as
it has been the subject of complaints
for years and is much needed in their
“Our community is a hardworking
community and the addition of cleaning
services to help us here maintain
clean streets is so important and paramount
in the lives of our neighbors and
residents,” said Josephine Beckmann.
Sanitation Commissioner Edward
Grayson commended both Brannan
and Beckmann for being ardent voices
for their constituents and for always
working together with his department
for the betterment of the community.
“It is always a pleasure to deal with
people who care, we are dedicated civil
servants, we work for you, we want to
keep your streets clean every single
day,” he said.

plant. The light therapy will allow the blood
vessels to grow back around the peripheral
