With the help of sponsorship from City Councilor Marti Emerald and dumpsters donated by EDCO, Groundwork holds a Trash Take- Away event in Southcrest. Many trash items such as mattresses and couches are too large for residents to leave curbside. The result is these items contribute to poor water quality in our watershed. This program provides a unique opportunity to speak to members of the community and work together to keep these areas clean and promote community empowerment.
