DETROIT – Several frustrated residents on Detroit’s west side reached out to Help Me Hank due to the garbage and illegal dumping in their neighborhood.
It’s happening on Northlawn Street. The city of Detroit was quick to respond, issuing tickets and cleaning up the mess, but the trash keeps coming.
Storm-related trash can still be set out, but notify the city first and schedule a pick up. If you don’t, you could be ticketed.
