Litter-Free Lawndale is one of the GROWSS committee's key initiatives, working with the North Lawndale Homeowners Association and many other partners to help make North Lawndale the cleanest neighborhood in the city! One of our key strategies to accomplish this is community clean-ups.
This spring, we have already partnered in successful clean-ups around Unity Park at 19th & Kostner and YMEN at 13th & Pulaski. We also created a form you can fill out to request a partnership for a clean-up in your own area: https://bit.ly/litterfreelawn.
