(09/20/10) GREENPOINT - Crews worked throughout the weekend to clean up the carnage left behind by powerful storms that moved through Brooklyn last week.

Waste Management crews picked up nearly 1,000 tons of tree limbs and broken branches, all of which the company says is being processed into mulch.

Peter Deluca, Waste Management's site manager, says there were so many trucks going into the facility over the weekend that the facility opened on Sunday at 6 a.m. and did not close until 10 p.m.

Deluca says he expects the same hours all week.
