City wide clean-up is now under way

A joint effort of the Westland Public Service and Neighborhood Services Department has been launched with Operation: Clean Sweep program to address the trash which has accumulated in the city during the winter months.

Mayor William R. Wild said the city would be divided into five sections and employees from both departments will pick up trash along the major and local roads, city parks and any vacant commercial properties.

 “As a result of the suspension of the 18th District Court Work Program due to Covid-19, and recent high winds, my office has received a high volume of complaints,” Wild said. “With unseasonable mild weather, our DPS and Neighborhood Service professionals have some extra capacity before normal spring maintenance begins.”  After the initial trash collection phase, the city will follow up with the first street sweeping of the season, he added.
