Unsung Heroes Keep NYC Neat and Tidy

We often hear about the heroics of the police and fire departments in the City, but I'd like to give a shout-out to the people who keep this city of 7 million residents clean and organized.

Let's face it, NYC would be as messy as a teenager's bedroom without the city sanitation workers, office cleaners, private maintenance firms, and others who clean up after the city's millions of residents, commuters, and visitors. (Remember that lovely sanitation strike of a few decades ago that left tons of waste piled up on the city streets... in THE SUMMER?! Ah, I can still smell it...)

Besides the City's sanitation department, there are also maintenance and cleaning staffs that are employees of private companies, as well as private companies that provide New York City cleaning service that offer home, office, post-construction, and street cleaning for NYC residents and businesses.

So let's give a tip of the hat to the City sanitation workers, maintenance workers, and cleaning companies like Maid for You New York, who handle everything from everyday trash to construction dust and debris. NYC would definitely be a grimier and less appealing place without them.
