Ridgely Delight’s Clean Streets committee

Help us keep Ridgely’s Delight clean! Wanna pitch in? The easiest way you can help is by keeping the area and street around your home clean (keep trash in bins and lids tight). Interested in doing more?  Join in on the Monday night Citizen On Patrol (COP) walks to help us pick up trash. Or, participate in one of our upcoming neighborhood/city cleanups which we will publish in advance. Still have more energy? Join the Ridgely’s Clean Streets committee to assist with outreach, signage, and fundraising.

Learn more at the July community meeting. Or, come share your ideas and join us at the clean streets committee meeting on July 12th at 6:30 pm. The meeting will take place at the tot lot (weather permitting). If you have questions, feel free to reach out to Julie Day (juliaannday@gmail.com) or Leslie Parks (lsessomparks@icloud.com)

Community dumpster

There will be another dumpster on Conway Street for community use on the morning of Saturday, July 23. The dumpsters are generally dropped off in the neighborhood around 9am and then picked up again by 11am.

Please do not use it for commercial waste, appliances (including microwaves and air conditioners) or building materials. Abuse could limit our ability to receive dumpsters from the city in the future.
