BeulahBeulah 1 Elementary Celebrates "Earth Day"

“Earth Day” was celebrated at Beulah Elementary School.  ESL students learned to use litter grabbers inside the classroom to clean the new school complex.  They collected two bags of trash and now Beulah is sparkling and clean once again!  Thank you, Kara Rogers and Joanna Jarrell, for teaching the students to keep Chesterfield County clean and green.

TornadoCutting Megal 1 Hits Genito Woods

Remnants of Hurricane Florence brought several tornadoes that swept through Chesterfield County.  Genito Woods was hit hard.  The residents and Insurance companies did all they could do to clean up, but large pieces of metal roofing tore through the neighborhood landing beside houses, in trees and scattered along the road side.  The Department of Community Enhancements Keep Chesterfield Beautiful team and Green's Tree Service came to the rescue and removed downed trees and brush, scrap metal was cut into smaller pieces for removal and delivered to the county’s Southern Area Convenience Center to be recycled.

CJersey Block Wallsommunity Enhancements "Keep Chesterfield Beautiful Team" Partners with Police to Resolve Illegal Dumping and Parking.

Community Enhancements "Keep Chesterfield Beautiful" team has spent many hours for several years picking up sofas, furniture, mattresses and more on Memphis Boulevard which is between Home Depot and O’Charley’s Restaurant on Hull Street Road.

Officer Tommy Mitchell took it upon himself to resolve the issue by partnering with Martin Marietta, VDOT and Community Enhancement.  Martin Marietta donated the jersey block/walls and placed them in the appropriate place, so illegal dumping and parking could not occur on Memphis Boulevard.  VDOT agreed to provide a “Road Closed” sign and a “No Parking” sign and Keep Chesterfield Beautiful program provided the “No Littering” sign.

Team MemPiano Pick Upbers to the Rescue

The Department of Community Enhancement’s Keep Chesterfield Beautiful team enhances the beauty of Chesterfield County daily by picking up litter/debris on secondary roads, cleaning fifteen major interchanges, picking up discarded furniture, appliances and more in cul-de-sacs, medians, ditches, and waterways.  No matter what the weather brings, this team is on a pro-active mission.

 Calvin Vonada and Summer Benton received a call from a business that someone had dropped a piano in a busy industrial center.  This piano was obstructing traffic flow and visibility, so Calvin and Summer knew they had to move fast to remove this extremely heavy item.  They were fortunate enough to see a forklift and driver close to the area and asked the driver to assist with lifting the piano into the truck for disposal.

Calvin and Summer were quick to respond to the removal request and made it safe for the customers of the industrial park and all residents traveling in that area.
