“The Litter Bug” – Where We Are Today
Changing the attitude and actions of the “litter bug” is a slow process. Despite all of the volunteers’ effort, outreach, and visibility, litter remains a persistent presence in our neighborhood. Volunteers alone cannot keep up with the daily litter in Dimond. This litter, once it is on the ground, in the gutters, “belongs” to all of us – merchants, property owners, residents, and friends of Dimond.
Fundraiser – We Need Your Help
The “Help! Keep Dimond Clean” fundraiser goal is to continue service by a paid crew for the 5-day weekly litter removal. “Keep Dimond Clean” volunteers will continue to work 2 days a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are also work days in Dimond Park.
