Keeping Collinwood Clean: E. 140th Street Clean-up Recap
Collinwood & Nottingham Villages Development Corporation has been in the spirit of neighborhood cleaning all summer, working in Glenville, Nottingham, Euclid Park neighborhoods. As we cleaned surrounding neighborhoods, we noticed E. 140th Street was filled with trash, debris, high grass and weeds. CNVDC organized a community clean-up in partnership with Job Corps, specifically covering along E. 140th Street on Wednesday August 29, 2018. CNVDC staff and Job Corps students picked up trash and debris along E. 140th St, we collected at over 20 bags of trash. “You can definitely see and feel you made a difference, when you clean the community, says Kristian Hunter, CNVDC Community Engagement Manger.
For the community clean up, CNVDC secured Cleveland Neighborhood Progress Clean & Green trailer.The Clean & Green Cleveland trailer is stocked with landscaping tools and cleanup supplies to assist with beautification and clean-up efforts and events in Cleveland’s neighborhoods. Having the tools available, volunteers were able to cut a vacant lot and cut weeds along the street to improve curb appeal. If any residents are interested in organizing a neighborhood clean-up or wish to reserve the Clean & Green trailer, please contact Kristian (216) 268-2138
