The Northeast Fall Clean up is in the books and by all accounts, it was a resounding success.
Packer trucks at The Concourse and at Lykins Park all reported steady traffic with all manner of discarded refuse and debris. Same for Sheffield and the electronics recycling at the Van Brunt soccer fields.
A 44 foot box trailer at The The Concourse was filled to overflowing with waste tires, all taken from alleys, vacant properties and illegal dump sites.
Heartland Tree Alliance was also on hand giving away free trees to residents and neighborhood associations like Scarritt Renaissance that amassed over fifty volunteers from Country Club Christian Church and planted a number of trees along Gladstone Boulevard and near the tennis courts at Concourse Park.
NEAT (NorthEast Alliance Together) organized the clean up working with the city’s Solid Waste Division who provided the trash trucks.
We’ll have an update on the trash tonnage later next week.
