Harvard Park Alley Clean Up

Just from the alleys in Harvard Park. Great workers in Harvard Park Friday afternoon and Saturday morning clearing out bulky items and “abandoned” garbage from the alleys.


Harvard Park alley cleanup, April, 2016

Wonderful workers from City Public Works will pick up and dispose of.

Waste haulers are not being required to “DO YOUR JOB!”  If so, this pile of waste from alleys would be one-twentieth in size. The FULL removal of garbage and bulky items from the alleys behind residences should be in the waste haulers’ contracts with the City. Failure of homeowners (this includes LANDLORDS who rent out the homes they own) to pay for garbage and waste pick up should result in fines that are levied AND collected.  All residents must show proof of paid waste collection.

Let’s take PRIDE in our homes, neighborhoods, the City we live in!
Demand comprehensive, effective and thorough waste management!!
