Mayor Paula Hicks-Hudson has declared an end to the trash. The Neighborhood Cleanups are an annual event, but this year, Hicks-Hudson is offering additional resources. Toledo neighborhoods will have access to free dump days, garbage bags, rakes and use of city lawnmowers (when the crews are in your neighborhood). The Mayor started the initiative with the North Detroit Corridor. Upcoming cleanup weeks are as follows: May 1-6, Detroit Ave. to Hawley St., Campbell St. to Dorr St.; June 12-17, Navarre Ave. to Starr Ave., Oak St. to White St.; July 10-15, Central Ave. to Delaware Ave., Warsaw St. to Mulberry St.; Aug. 14-19, Auburn Ave. to Upton Ave., Ottawa St. to Woodruff Ave.; Sept. 11-16, Western Ave. to Prouty Ave., Stebbins St. to Sumner St.
Report illegal dumping, call Engage Toledo at 419-936-2020 to make service requests 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. toledo.oh.gov.
