Litter Baskets Initiative to include Wards Corner

June 16, 2008

This month’s Civic Connection, produced by the City of Norfolk, mentions Wards Corner in an article about a Litter Basket Initiative.

Litter Baskets initiative – Public Works has purchased a number of litter containers that will be placed in high litter areas throughout the city.  There are criteria for selecting the locations.  The new containers were selected by Design Review and are similar to those in use downtown and along 21st Street.  Waste Management will empty the containers 3 times per week.  In the past, we have had a limited number of wire baskets for litter.  These will be phased out. The first area where we will be adding containers will be Ward’s Corner.  John Deuel and his staff have been working with the businesses.  We are exploring ideas of limited advertising on the containers.  This has been a combined initiative of the Norfolk Environmental Commission and staff and Waste Management.
