Park Pleasant: ‘Dumpster Day is Something They Really Want’
Nothing brings out Park Pleasant neighbors like a Dumpster Day.
â€œThatâ€™s the one time we get people out,â€ said Chris Clark of the Park Pleasant Neighborhood Association. â€œPeople have a good time. Dumpster Day is something they really want. â€œ
Itâ€™s also, of course, a way for residents to make their yards, homes and neighborhoods cleaner and safer.
â€œLots of people in my neighborhood might buy some stuff second hand, and when that goes, you canâ€™t take it anywhere to be recycled,â€ Clark said.
Renting a dumpster can cost $300 to $515, according to neighborhood association members. Insurance for an event is $111, and permit fees are $35.
â€œIf we didnâ€™t get the CAP grant money, we wouldnâ€™t have a dumpster day,â€ Clark said. â€œThey just make the city a safe city and a good city if neighbors know each other.â€
