A recent clean-up effort in Howard Beach and Broad Channel swept up trash-ridden areas along, underneath and adjacent to the Joseph P. Addabbo Memorial Bridge.
The effort, through Wildcat Service Corporation, was funded by Councilman Eric Ulrich.
Wildcat provides job opportunities and resources for New Yorkers to become more economically independent. It has helped thousands of unemployed New Yorkers find jobs, build careers and receive training since its inception in 1972.
Ulrich said his office has received several complaints about trash and debris along the Addabbo Bridge, which is why he enlisted the help of Wildcat for a clean-up effort.
“The Addabbo Bridge serves as the gateway to both Howard Beach and Broad Channel,” he said, “so it is important this area remains clean.
