Urban Beautification

In 2021, driven by efforts to reduce unsightly properties and dumping in the city of Toledo, the Department of Public Service started the Clean Toledo Initiative to clear the city of blight. Crews respond to reports of blight concerns, including debris, trash, or illegal dumping on public or abandoned properties. The removal of blight in our community helps stabilize property values and eliminate crime, sustaining the viability of our neighborhoods. Our proactive approach to property maintenance means you'll see Urban Beautification workers out in neighborhoods, at community events, and working at neighborhood clean-up events.
