24 ' CAPE GAZETI'E, Friday, March 7 - March 13, 1997 Willie Brown, compliance supervisor for the Delaware Solid Waste Authority (second from left), accepts a check from Waste Management of Delmarva Division President Jonathan Kissel for $1,000 to be used to assist communities in Kent and Sussex counties with neighbor- hood trash cleanups. Also shown are CpL Lionel Maull (left) and CpL Ron Merritt (right) of the Delaware State Police. Donation will assist community clean up efforts in Kent, Sussex Thanks to a donation from Waste Management of Delmarva, selected communities will now have resources available to assist them in cleaning up their neigh- borhoods. Officials with Waste Manage- ment recently donated $1,000 to the Kent and Sussex Strong Com- munities Initiatives for potential clean-ups in Kent and Sussex counties. The money will be used to cov- er the cost of trash disposal. In ad- dition, the company will provide dumpsters and transportation of collected trash to landfill facili- ties. "Our goal is to provide assis- tance and incentive to these com- munities so that they might orga- nize a clean-up day," said William "Chip" McDaniel of the Division of Air and Waste Management, which coordinated the donation. "Events such as community cleanups provide neighborhoods a chance to build some pride and develop a feeling of ownership of their area." The Strong Communities Initia- tive was established through Gov. Thomas R. Carper's Family Ser- vices Cabinet Council and the Delaware State Police. The pur- pose of the initiative is to create partnerships with and between the target communities and local, state, public and private entities and organizations. This partner- ship enables collaborative corn- munity-based planning and action with the following goals: reduction of substance abuse and related crime; reduction of health and social service problems; strengthening of families and communities; improving economic, educa- tional, and environmental well- being of the targeted communi- ties. The Sussex County communi- ties are Coverdale Crossroads, West Rehoboth, Lucas Develop- ment, Twin Cedars, Pepper Ridge, Ellendale - New Hope, Shockley- town and Lazy Lagoon.
