The Clean First Program was developed in response to the City’s Clean-up Cuse Adopt-A-Block program, a year-long neighborhood beautification initiative. Focusing on the Historic Hawley-Green triangle (bounded by James St., Lodi St., and Burnet Ave.) NEHDA is encouraging neighborhood residents, property owners/investors, businesses and stakeholders to assist with “on the spot” litter pickup, as necessary.Clean First will allow those who are interested to stop by the NEHDA offices any weekday during the first full week of each month, grab a bag, and proceed to any area in the Hawley-Green triangle and help beautify our neighborhood. Volunteers can return to NEHDA, drop off what they have picked up and let us know the area they cleaned. More information can be found here.
