As Naomi Campbell heads toward the midway point in her court-ordered community service, her rep tells PEOPLE: "Naomi is doing great."

"She has been ready to start and complete her service, and will do it to the best of her ability," says Campbell's spokesman, Jeff Raymond. "Upon finishing, she's due to begin her next assignment for British GQ, where she serves as contributing editor for the magazine."

Campbell arrived at a downtown New York City Department of Sanitation building for her first day of work on Monday. Her tasks include sweeping and mopping locker room floors.

"I saw her lots of times. She's a very nice girl," Beverly Pearce, who worked alongside the supermodel, told PEOPLE after Campbell's second day."I thought she would be snooty but she was very nice."

Campbell's five-day cleanup duty is part of the sentence she received after pleading guilty in January to assaulting a maid with a cell phone.

Albert Durrell, deputy chief of the sanitation department, tells PEOPLE the 36-year-old catwalker appeared to have bonded with two of her fellow workers – a man and a woman.

"They had lunch together," says Durrell, adding that he thought she ordered out from a sandwich shop.

The novelty of Campbell's presence has worn off, he says.

"Everyone is familiar with the community service program and at this point, I feel everyone's already used to it by now," he says. "We've had celebrities before and everyone's busy. We're out there working. Maybe a glance or two here or a double take here or there, but that's about it."

Still, when Campbell finished her work day on Monday, a crowd of paparazzi had gathered outside the building – and fashion photographer Steven Klein jumped on the hood of her awaiting SUV to get a good shot of her fashionable farewell.

Why the documentation? "Naomi and Steven are good friends and they collaborate often on all sorts of projects, personal and professional," rep Raymond tells PEOPLE.
