Lawn Litter Campaign

An August 3rd, 2008 press conference at City Hall protesting unwanted menus and advertising fliers was attended by Sustainable Flatbush. Neighborhood residents are being organized to file affidavits against companies that dump materials on their property, and Sustainable Flatbush has created a downloadable “No Fliers” sign.

Flatbush Frolic Recycling Promotion

Working with the Department of Sanitation’s WasteLess program, Sustainable Flatbush had a Recycling Table at the 30th annual Flatbush Frolic (2007) street fair to distribute literature and materials promoting residential recycling.
