The Clean & Green staff at the Harvard Community Services Center are on the move in Ward 1.
Here are the before and after photos of 4064 Lee Rd, Boost Mobile, illegal dumping, and the clean-up.
Robert Paterson (Health Dept.) and Michael Cox (Public Works) were instrumental in helping with the solution. The city removed the dumpster, and a garbage packer was used to clean up and remove all of the surrounding debris.
Thank you to all who were involved!
CDC staff work to provide neighborhood stabilization through community clean-ups and beautification. If you notice areas that require clean-up in Ward One,

Hello, Ward 1 from HCSC's Clean and Green work crew! 3-11-21, was our second day of abandoned tire harvesting around the Ward. Twelve (12) tires were picked up and removed from around the 154th St. railroad crossing on route to Beachwood Ave. Two loads of 25 tires per load were properly disposed of at the City's Ridge Ave. Transfer station.
We also cleaned up the illegal roof decking debris from along the southeast corner of Lee/Invermere. Approximately 8 tires were removed from Lee Rd. north of Harvard Ave. the remaining tires were randomly picked up as were drove through the ward.
Don't forget a citizen either renting or owning in the City of Cleveland can now put out up to 4 tires in their garbage pick-up, so no need any longer to illegally dump!
Thanks, and let's all continue to keep Ward 1 a clean and inviting place to live!
Here are some photos from the Clean ups.

Harvard Community Services Center Collaborations: HCSC is doing this work to ensure that there are no environmental hazards in the soil. Please view link below. https://youtu.be/HXmvuxLnzGo
The Manik and Smith group used the drill rig to get samples of dirt from the ground level all the way to 20 feet in the ground.
These samples will undergo testing to see what type of hazards lie within the soil (Since it was a former gas station site there is likely contamination).
Armed with information from the testing, the Manik Smith group will be able to make an informed decision about how to best handle the site, and mitigate any potential environmental hazard that may be on the site.
This will provide the community with a clean lot that they can use for a community gardens or possible commercial development. This project is paid for by the OHIOEPA as part of their abandoned underground storage tank program.
