The Soulard Community Improvement District (CID) is in the process of installing 71 new trash cans throughout Soulard. Over the coming weeks, residents will see the cans appear on street corners throughout the district boundaries, from Broadway to 13th and Sidney to Marion. The CID has also contracted with a trash management service to empty the cans on a weekly basis, ensuring plenty of capacity for residents and visitors alike to help keep Soulard clean.
In addition to adding trash capacity to the neighborhood, The CID is also joining the neighborhood’s multi-organization partnership with the Soulard Clean Team, a rotating group of residents from Peter & Paul Community Services men’s shelter. In addition to existing funding from the Soulard Business Association, Soulard Restoration Group and Trinity Lutheran Church, the CID, as well as the Soulard Special Business District (SBD), have committed funding to the program, allowing for more Clean Team members, more days of the week and even more streets and alleys picked up – resulting in a cleaner and safer Soulard.
