WHAT: New York City and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launch the 2016 “Clean Streets = Clean Beaches” campaign, a public information and beach cleanup program aimed at improving the cleanliness and aesthetics of city beaches by reducing littering on streets and in parks. The program aims to show that litter on city streets becomes litter on city beaches.
