    This is one beauty queen who doesn’t mind being called trashy. Pageant veteran Nicole Doz — the first runner-up for Miss Staten Island 2017 — has added a sanitation worker uniform to her wardrobe of sashes. And the 23-year-old is doing it all for the love of New York City. “That’s why I took the job!” she told The Post. “It’s not the most glamorous look, but that doesn’t mean [the job’s] not awesome.” And getting to her new title of street sweeper was even more grueling than going through talent, interview and swimsuit contests.
