The severe Metro penalties facing neighborhoods for'cleanup' debris containing asbestos has not stopped Eastmoreland's cleanup

DAVID F. ASHTON - Volunteers at this years Eastmoreland Neighborhood Clean-up pitch trash into one of several Heiberg Garbage dropboxes. Many residents of Eastmoreland again participated in their neighborhood's annual clean-up on Saturday, July 15.

Dropboxes for mixed refuse and metal recycling, a document shredding truck, and a truck waiting to haul away Styrofoam were parked in the corner parking lot at Duniway Elementary School for the day.

Now in his sixth year of coordinating the community cleanup, 13-year resident Matt Morozovsky told THE BEE they'd had a brisk morning of activity accepting material from folks driving, or who carried in debris and refuse.

"This year' we're partnering with the Dunaway PTA to gain an expanded base of volunteers – and, at the same time, to deepen the base of the fundraiser," Morozovsky said. "Duniway School is the center of our neighborhood, so it's great to involve the PTA with the neighborhood cleanup.

"It's amazing how we get very positive feedback from all the people who are participating, and, we have the greatest number of volunteers in recent history!"

With that, Morozovsky turned to resume helping some of the some-twenty volunteers take in another load of trash.
