Transformation through Trash Pick-up

Transformation through Trash Pick-up

Restoring spaces is a tangible picture of flourishing in the community, moving from chaos to order.

Picking up trash and cleaning up the neighborhood was a priority for Natalie, one of the Tepe Park neighbors. So, the community launched their first-ever Dumpster Day, in partnership with Republic Services (who donated dumpsters). Around 4,800 pounds of trash were picked up in one day. Heavy trash can be a challenge for many neighbors.  One Tepe Park neighbor was able to reclaim their front porch because fellow neighbors helped her remove all of her heavy trash during Dumpster Day.  Now, she and her family can sit and enjoy their porch.  Restoring spaces like this is a tangible picture of flourishing in the community, moving from chaos to order.
