Hey neighbors –
I wanted to thank everyone that came out to our Reading Road Cleanup at the end of July. We had fifteen volunteers including seven children and it was lovely seeing kids getting out and cleaning up! Judicial candidate Elizabeth Tye stopped by and did the Dana-Clinton Springs-Reading triangle with her husband. It was great to see a political candidate that lives and volunteers in our neighborhood! After consolidating the bags, we collected around seven 30-gallon bags of trash which is a pretty good haul. Some of the volunteers took home Don’t Trash the ‘Nati yard signs with them and I also put a few up around Reading – I’ll be honest, it doesn’t seem to have made a dent in how often people litter on Dana and Reading so if anyone has any thoughts or recommendations on how to reduce littering or have more effective clean ups please reach out! Special thanks to Elizabeth Tye, Kevin Bristol, Jolene Struebbe, Jim Miller, Marian Miller, the Wolfenberg Family, the LaNiear Family and Paul Harten.
Another way that we can reduce litter in North Avondale: moving our cars when the street sweepers come! Not every street in North Avondale has the same street sweeping date so I’m including instructions on how to check your address. Go to http://cagismaps.hamilton-co.org/cincinnatiServices/ServiceSchedules/ and enter your address in the right-hand side text box (pictured right). You’ll then be able to see what day the street sweeper will be on your street and move your car to a driveway or a different street that’s not getting swept that day. Make sure to also tell your neighbors and friends to “Show their pride, move their ride” on street sweeping days! (Not my slogan by the way, that’s straight from the Department of Public Services 😊).
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions, comments, suggestions, or concerns via email at firstname.lastname@example.org – I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
Your neighborhood Litter Chair, Coral Weigel
