BROOKLYN - The Midwood community is demanding sanitation improvements throughout the neighborhood.

Councilman David Greenfield joined residents and local business owners for a news conference Tuesday asking the City Council to improve garbage cleanup in the area.

The group complains that wastebaskets on Avenue J aren’t emptied often, and that their streets are constantly littered with trash.

Greenfield also asked city officials why there are resources to keep Manhattan clean, but not Brooklyn.
