CITIBIN, a company created by New York entrepreneur Liz Picarazzi in 2012, is working with the New York Clean Curbs initiative to keep commercial trash off sidewalks.

CITIBIN is a new form of trash enclosure that provides a durable alternative to the typical stacks of garbage bags that New Yorkers are used to seeing block sidewalks and curbs. The Clean Curbs initiative, through the New York City Department of Sanitation, allows for Business Improvement Districts to have CITIBIN sealed, on-street containers for trash and recycling storage. 

CITIBIN is based in Brooklyn at Industry City, and the borough now has Clean Curbs’ CITIBINS in Brooklyn Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) such as Montague Street. The Times Square Alliance BID was the first to install CITIBIN sealed containers. Many other BIDs across New York City are applying to the Clean Curbs program as well to help keep streets more sanitary. The city is providing grants to help with the upfront cost of containers such as CITIBIN, to give a viable waste management solution to the public health and safety concerns of the New York streetscape.
