The Park Needs Us

Talk Trash with Us

During the busy summer season, the Central Park Conservancy’s Maintenance team emptied 150 tons of garbage each month! That’s the weight of around 30 adult elephants. Over just one day, the team empties each of the Park’s approximately 1,000 trash cans 10 to 20 times. Our Trash Talk video series follows the Maintenace team to discover what it takes to keep the Park clean 365 days a year.
