Community Cleanup This Saturday Near Turkey Thicket As Part Of SWEEP Program

We thought neighbors would be interested in knowing about this cleanup and outreach effort going on in the neighborhood Saturday. From an email:

This Saturday, August 12, from 9am to 5pm, the DC Department of Public Works and DC Superior Court’s Community Court program will have a joint project just north of Turkey Thicket. It will be a clean-up and canvassing project by ~15 people who have a community service requirement as part of a sentence or part of getting their case dismissed. DPW will be assigning the tasks (as they usually do with those who perform their court community service at a DPW site or on a DPW project). Volunteers will be cleaning up or canvassing the neighborhood, giving out information on DPW’s Solid Waste Education & Enforcement Program (SWEEP). The Court will have a table and tent at the corner of 10th St and Perry, with information about court programs and to answer any questions area residents may have.
