Youngstown targets East Side dumping ground

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Just weeks after announcing plans to clean up an illegal dumping ground on the city's North Side, Youngstown has undertaken an effort to get rid of a dump in a secluded East Side neighborhood.

Mayor Jamael Tito Brown held a news conference Wednesday announcing plans to demolish an illegal dumping spot on property at the 1500 block of Forest Glen Avenue, which about a block from Jacobs Road.

Heavy equipment moved to the site and immediately began demolishing a long-abandoned home.

Last month the city said it would demolish the former Moose Lodge building that had become a dumping area in the historic Brier Hill neighborhood.

The Mayor is also expected to announce a new partnership with the Community Corrections Association to take over litter and dump site cleanup for the city.

CCA is a private nonprofit agency which provides programs including a litter patrol for misdemeanor and felony offenders.

The Mayor says the partnership will allow an additional crew to help clean up litter and end illegal dumping in Youngstown.
