Fighting Litter & Weeds in Skyway’s Business District

  West Hill Action Mob

by Devin Chicras

About 20 55-gallon bags full of litter and weeds were removed from Renton Avenue South in the Skyway Business District on Saturday, September 21st, thanks to 11 hard-working neighbors (Mary, Cindy, Tina, Miki, Rodney, Mark, Pat, Jadeyn, Curn, Devin, and Jim). 

After loading up on breakfast snacks and free drinks from Nevzat’s Espresso, our volunteers rolled up their sleeves and helped make our Skyway business district area shine.

Mulch recently installed in the beds along Renton Avenue South between 75th and 76th Avenue South was already starting to sprout some pretty nasty weeds, and we were there to take care of it before it got out of control.

A special thank you goes out to Seth & King County Community Work Program for helping us coordinate hauling away the pile and for lending extra tools.

WHAM projects are supported in part by King County Department of Local Services‘ Community Service Areas grant program, and by folks like you.

Weren’t able to make it? You can still make a huge impact by joining your neighbors in giving $5 or more a month to the leanest, hardest working all-volunteer nonprofit in the neighborhood.
