  • Dayton Inspires teams up with Dayton Dragons to clean up 15 TONS of trash

Dayton Inspires and Dayton Dragons are working together again to clean up a neighborhood in the city and this time, their mission is to cover over 15 blocks in West Dayton.

This is not the first time that this Dayton-centric duo has teamed up: they’ve recovered roughly 6 tons of trash in past spring clean-ups. This time they’re (more than) doubling down and are estimating 15 tons will be removed during this large-scale project. 

Dayton Inspires will partner with Dayton Dragons to clean-up an estimated 15 tons of trash from a neighborhood in West Dayton. CONTRIBUTED

Volunteers will work in teams to paint vacant housesclean up vacant lotsremove and seal illegal dumping zones and clear out alleyways in the neighborhoods behind the Dayton Boys Prep Academy up to the St. Benedict the Moor Catholic School.

The Dragons players and Heater (a former Daytonian of the Week, we might add 😉) will be there to give away prizes and kick everything off!

This cleanup “would bring the total amount of trash Dayton Inspires has removed from our streets just shy of 50 tons in a little over a year,” Matthew Sliver of Dayton Inspires said.

This is the fifth clean-up project for the Dayton Inspires group, which aims to restore the city of Dayton one neighborhood at a time.

That is the mission of the Dayton Inspires campaign; getting people back into their communities and appreciating their city.
