Members of the Danbury Unified Neighborhood Inspection Team participated in a massive cleanup along the embankment on Mill Plain Road between the exits 1 and 2 commuter parking lots. UNIT officials say vandals have dumped large items down the hillside, including construction debris, couches, mattresses, house siding, pool equipment, and televisions.
A work crew from the City's Clean Start program worked for two days to remove the garbage.
The program is a joint effort with Jericho Partnership to offer help to the city's homeless population. It puts people on a pathway to employment through beautification projects in exchange for gift cards and community services.
