The cans have been placed all over Sanders’ 31st council district costing a total of $30,000 – with five cans in the Rockaways. As he looked around at the wind blown garbage on Beach 22 Street by the subway station and Thriftway , Sanders said he hopes the new cans will encourage people to do the right thing. “If it is dirty, it looks like no one wants to do business and it leads to more dirt,” he said. Sanders told The Wave he was working with the sanitation department on the specific needs of the Rockaways. “It’s the little things,” concluded Sanders. Photo by Miriam Rosenberg
