NEW ORLEANS - District "C" Councilmember Kristin Gisleson Palmer, Algiers Economic Development Foundation, and JUGS Krewe of NOMTOC will host Algiers Clean Sweep, a community-led effort to clean-up every neighborhood in Algiers and reduce the number of blighted properties. Algiers Clean Sweep will take place on Saturday, November 14, from 9 AM to 3 PM. Several organizations, neighborhood groups, and volunteers have partnered with Councilmember Palmer to provide volunteers, food, and cleaning supplies to make Algiers Clean Sweep a success.
As part of the Algiers Clean Sweep initiative, the City's Department of Code Enforcement and grant funding from Harrah's will assist with clearing and cleaning five blighted lots in the Old Aurora and Cut Off communities. Residents can drop off old tires, glass for recycling, and food items for composting at the staging area, located at 2501 Wall Boulevard, during the Algiers Clean Sweep hours of 9 AM to 3 PM.
Free paper shredding will also be available to residents at the staging site. Councilmember Palmer is inviting every community in Algiers to organize a clean up within their neighborhood. Volunteers and businesses are also needed to adopt a blighted lot.
