Cleanup Collaboration in RVA

Each day, the City of Richmond, Virginia uses SeeClickFix to address issues, improve communities and communicate with citizens about their concerns. However, Richmond's dedication to helping residents isn't just an online effort. Offline, the city is connecting volunteers with resources needed to fix community problems around RVA.

The Clean City Commission (CCC) is lending a helping hand to citizens who are tidying up their communities by providing refuse trucks and workers to assist with volunteer cleanup events. Through the CCC page of the city's website, neighborhood and business associations, as well as informal groups of concerned neighbors can submit requests for a truck and learn more about how to organize their own neighborhood volunteer cleanup event. Groups can receive assistance from the CCC up to four times per year!

The Greater Woodstock Area Civic Association is one group taking advantage of this CCC program for their upcoming Community Cleanup event. On May 21, 2011, the CCC will be providing GWACA with two trash trucks and two workers to help volunteers collect and properly dispose of yard trash, old tires, furniture, appliances, and other bulk items. If you're in the Richmond area and interested in joining the GWACA Community Cleanup event, volunteers will be meeting in the open field at Circlewood Drive and Stockwood Drive at 8:00AM.

SeeClickFix is proud to be working with a city so committed to serving residents and cleaning up communities!
