Yeadon Borough Clean Up – Major Success!

On Saturday, April 21, 2018 a much needed facelift was given to a main corridor that leads into Yeadon. Volunteers from both Yeadon and Philadelphia collaborated and cleaned up the area of Church Lane at Allen Drive to 70th and Cobbs Creek. This particular area has been an eyesore for a very long time so volunteers from both municipalities worked hand in hand in accomplishing this amazing goal. The area has been eradicated of tons of trash. A big thank you to ALL of the individuals who made it happen. This was not done by one person alone but by everyone collectively. The results speak volumes. Great job to all!

Cleanup Day = Yeadon and Comcast Cares

Philadelphia and Comcast Cares join Yeadon for Clean-up Day – Saturday, April 21

Comcast Cares volunteers will be assisting Yeadon on Saturday,April 21st from 8 am to 12 pm to help clean up a major gateway that leads into the Borough (Church Lane at Allen Drive to 70th & Cobbs Creek Parkway).

Every year Comcast chooses an entity or municipality to help clean, plant trees and/or bring a needed facelift to communities by contributing to the environment and taking an active leadership role in being a responsible community partner.

Last year Comcast chose Yeadon and in a joint effort with dozens of volunteers and our Public Works Department cleaned up West Cobbs Creek Parkway from Chester Avenue to St. Louis Church. This year Comcast has chosen us again and will be assisting with cleaning our major gateway area. Philadelphia also will be collaborating and cleaning up their portion of 70th Street adjacent to ours at the same time.

We are in need of more volunteers so if you are interested in joining us then please contact Mr. Winston Reid at 610-931-3408. The staging area will be at Church Lane and Allen Drive where we will meet and register. Our Public Works Department will be on-site as well. Gloves, supplies and all needed materials will be provided. Portable lavatories will be on site. The area will be secured so that we can safely work. Please dress comfortably and fitting for this clean-up effort.

Thanks in advance for your interest in helping to keep Yeadon clean.
