Making D.C. cleaner one public space at a time
Who got it done: D.C. Department of Public Works
This week we have to give the D.C. Department of Public Works credit for fixing not one -- but two -- separate messes in Northeast D.C. In early July, griper Sylvia Brown reported an overgrown lot at the corner of Eastern Ave. and Meade St. It was full of rats and the four-to-five foot tall weeds were beginning to push into a nearby bus stop. DPW sent out a team and trimmed the lot.
A DPW team also cleaned up the alley between the 2600 block of Reed St. and 10 St. NE. A griper named 10th St. resident reported the alley had become "a dumping ground" with assorted trash strewn around including bicycle tires, furniture, flourescent light tubes, empty beer bottles and much more. This effort was especially impressive because officials reported it cleaned up before we could even write about in The Daily Gripe column.
