City Partners with Community to Clean Dump Site

Koloko dump site

The City of Clearlake partnered with Citizens Caring 4 Clearlake (CC4C) to tackle a vacant property at 3704 Koloko Street that had become an illegal dump site. Volunteers from CC4C began sorting recyclables from the trash covered property in early September and on September 14th and 18th, Code Enforcement and Public Works personnel removed the recycling and loaded trash into dumpsters with a backhoe. CC4C volunteers continued working on the site until completing the clean up this week.

According to Code Enforcement Supervisor, Lee Lambert, “The amount of garbage on the site was just insane. We assisted in removing over 60 cubic yards of garbage, 61 tires, 2,000 pounds of scrap metal, 2,400 pounds of scrap wood, a bunch of appliances and other junk, not to mention three abandoned vehicles that we had towed away using Abandoned Vehicle Abatement funds.”

City Manager, Greg Folsom, said “This is the third project where the City has partnered with Citizens Caring 4 Clearlake to make a significant improvement to an area. This particular project was in the middle of a neighborhood that is now tremendously nicer. We could not have achieved this without the support of CC4C and the great work they are doing to clean up our city.”
