Albemarle Neighborhood Association Meeting
Thursday, March 17th, 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Have you noticed that sometimes
  • our streets and sidewalks are not as clean and litter-free as they're supposed to be?
  • the corner litter baskets get filled up quickly?
  • households and businesses are illegally throwing their garbage in the corner baskets?
  • store owners don't sweep the sidewalk or street in front of their building, which is required by law?

guest speaker at the Albemarle Neighborhood Association's (ANA) first meeting of 2016 will be Nicholas Circharo, a representative from the Community Affairs Unit of the New York City Department of Sanitation. He will answer your questions and will also gather information from you about the trouble spots you've observed.

Members and non-members are welcome to attend all ANA meetings. Admission is free to this and all other ANA monthly meetings.

Light refreshments will be provided free by Foodtown and ANA.
