Beautifying our Neighborhoods: Ward 10 Clean & Green Dumpster Days Recap
Ward 10 Councilman Anthony Hairston partnered with the Collinwood Nottingham Development Corporation to organize “Ward 10 Clean & Green Dumpster Days,” a weekend neighborhood cleanup geared toward disposing of trash and beautifying the community. Councilman Hairston made sure residents and community stakeholders had access to a large dumpster for a three-day period to dispose of trash and debris in their homes or businesses.
In July, we cleaned the Glenville and Nottingham neighborhoods in partnership with Glenville Rebirth Coalition, Cleveland Neighborhood Initiative (CNI) and Nottingham United Methodist Church. Residents were able to volunteer, dispose of their own trash, and enjoy an ice cream social. In August, we cleaned Euclid Park and St. Clair Superior neighborhoods in partnership with CNI, Famicos Foundation and Litterbugz. “Residents tend to feel better about their environment when it’s clean and litter free. Through organizing a beautification of the Ward allowed me to connect and meet, dedicated residents who care about our community, says Councilman Hairston.
Our local officers care about the appearance of our community as well, 5th District Lt. Montanaro came out to clean the Nottingham neighborhood. We even got a chance to use Cleveland Neighborhood Progress Clean & Green Trailer. Over the weekend, volunteers, residents, and business owners collected large amounts of trash and successfully filled the dumpsters in each neighborhood.
In September, we invite residents and community stakeholders surrounding the Collinwood neighborhood to join us on Saturday September 8, 2018 at Five Pointe Community Center from 9:00am-1:00pm. Residents will have access to the dumpster on Friday September 7th through Sunday September 9th. If you are interested in participating, feel free to contact Kristian Hunter, 216-268-2138.
