Resources to Help Reduce Illegal Dumping and Blight


Community Clean-up - May 23, 2007

A communitywide Neighborhood Clean-up was held on Wednesday, May 23 2007. City and County Public Works Departments, City and County staff, Community Housing Development Corporation of North Richmond (CHDC), YouthBuild, Richmond Santiray Service and Sims Metal all participated to help make this Neighborhood Clean-up a success. Approximately 50 tons of household trash and 33.5 tons of metal was collected during the Clean-up

Presentations were made to Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin, County Supervisor John Gioia, and others to thank them for supporting the work that is happening in North Richmond.  Concurrently with the Clean-up, several beautification efforts took place. Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin, County Supervisor John Gioia, and a host of others joined Harold Beaulieu, County Arts Commissioner, as tile art created by the Verde Elementary students was placed on trash receptacles in the area and butterfly murals were strategically placed on graffiti-prone walls at various locations throughout the area.
