Armed with rakes and brooms, Goodwill is helping keep Norwalk clean.

It's all part of the Mayor's Clean City Initiative to keep Norwalk's business district and urban core attractive and litter-free.

"We've partnered with Goodwill and the Redevelopment Agency to have three workers and a job coach come in each week for two days, four hours each day. Their task is going to be picking up trash and litter on the sidewalks and street of Wall Street and the surrounding area," said Mayor Harry Rilling.

"It is about putting people to work and what we focus on is really their ability rather than their disability. People want to be engaged. The City of Norwalk is rightfully prideful of this area and the people who work here are feeling pride in participating in that," said Vickie Volpano, President of Goodwill Western & Northern Conencticut.

The clean team will focus on the Wall Street area for a six-month trial period.
