Spotlight: Meet Carlos Valladares from the Lincoln Square BID Clean Team

Carlos Valladares is a dedicated and hardworking member of our district's 14 person Clean Team, contracted through Atlantic Maintenance. Our Clean Team performs a number of tasks that positively impact our neighborhood's quality of life, such as sweeping the sidewalks and streets 18 inches out from the curb to clear litter and bagging trash from our BID branded receptacles for NYC's Department of Sanitation (DSNY) to collect.

On a typical day out in Lincoln Square, you'll find Carlos performing his important duties in his zone along the west side of Broadway, from 58th Street up to 65th Street, though he does work throughout the entire district. He has been working hard in Lincoln Square, caring for the streets, sidewalks, and public spaces for nearly six years and was recently promoted to morning  supervisor this past spring. Carlos lives in Ridgewood, Queens with his wife, son, and daughter, and when he isn't on the job, he's usually home helping his children with their school work or playing soccer with them. While he's here in Lincoln Square, he says he really enjoys working outside, especially in the summer and fall, and is familiar with the ins and outs of our district's daily bustle. Overall, his favorite parts of Lincoln Square are our two parks: Richard Tucker and Dante Park. To him, they are a relaxing part of this busy city.

The Lincoln Square BID Clean Team plays an integral role in supporting our organization's efforts to keep the district clean, safe, and beautiful. Look for Carlos and the rest of our great team when you're out on the streets in our wonderful neighborhood.
