More Trashcans in Elmwood Park

Through the combined efforts of our ENA Animal Welfare (Margaret Dew), Beautification (Janet Smith), and Code Compliance (Joyce Lehe) leaders, the Park Department has replaced 3 trashcans in the Elmwood Parkway.  These three, along with other members and neighbors, met onsite at the park with Dallas Park representatives to discuss Elmwood concerns.  This meeting resulted in the removal of dumped tires, consideration for a butterfly garden & Monarch way station in Elmwood Park, and identifying locations for the three trashcans.  The missing trashcans were along Elmwood Blvd and Lansford between Polk and Edgefield.  In addition to the replacements, the Park department agreed to ensure regular emptying of trash cans in all areas of the park.
