2014 Neighborhood Clean-up Program recap

Every year, at the end of October, the Neighborhood Councils wrap up the annual Clean-up Program Event. This year was quite a success. In total, the 27 Neighborhood Councils rid a combined total of over 800 tons of trash and clean green material from the neighborhoods!

The program gives each neighborhood $6,500 every year to use to clean up their neighborhood. Some use the funds for a neighborhood dumpster roll-off event, some for extra neighborhood curbside pickup; many use dump passes and others even do alley cleanups.

Managed by the Office of Neighborhood Services, the Clean-up Program has been going for 14 years, and has rid the neighborhoods of a total of 16,000 tons of trash and clean green material!

Next time you receive a postcard in the mail from your Neighborhood Council regarding a free cleanup in your neighborhood, be sure to thank them for working so hard to provide this invaluable service each year!

Neighborhoods will begin scheduling events again come spring.
