Clean & Green Dumpster Days: Nottingham Villages Recap
Ward 10 Councilman Anthony Hairston partnered with the Greater Collinwood 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.
On May 4th, 2019, Councilman Hairston, GCDC staff, CNI (Cleveland Neighborhood Initiative) ICONS and resident volunteers picked up trash and debris along St. Clair and Nottingham Rd. Volunteers also worked together on a streetscape beautification removing weeds and replacing with mulch. “This was a very productive clean-up; we had over 20 volunteers participate. We truly made a difference in the appearance of our community” says Delrico McDonald Ward 10 Intern.
This dumpster day was one of many dumpster days to come this summer. The next Clean & Green Dumpster Day will be in the Euclid Park neighborhood on Saturday June 15, 2019 from 9am-10am. The dumpster location is TBD, if you are interested in volunteering please contact Kristian Hunter 216-268-2138.
