Chinatown Partnership Service Area


The Chinatown Clean Streets initiative addresses the sanitation needs of the neighborhood and demonstrates to the community the economic value of a cleaner commercial district and provides employment opportunities for local residents. In addition, the program includes outreach and educational services critical to the realization of a public and private partnership with the goal of revitalizing the Chinatown community. 

Sanitation & supplemental services program is in addition to, not in replacement of, existing sanitation services provided by the City.   

Supplemental cleaning services include: manual sweeping and cleaning of sidewalks, curbs and gutters; emptying and bagging of pedestrian trash receptacles; pressure washing of sidewalks, cleaning of graffiti from street furniture and building surfaces accessible from the street; maintenance of street trees and tree pits; and snow removal at bus stops, street corners and crosswalks. Illegal posters and stickers are removed, and catch basins receive attention.

Uniformed maintenance personnel work 7 days a week between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., to sweep sidewalks and curbs of about 45 block area (180 block faces) in Chinatown.

The service area is generally bounded by Broome Street to the north, Allen and Pike Streets to the east, Worth and Madison Streets to the south, and Broadway to the west.
