Keep Hyde Park Beautiful

The goal, over 100 years ago, painter John Enneking drew inspiration from the beauty of Hyde Park. A century later we are fortunate to still be surrounded by so much natural beauty. There’s a lot to be proud of here – our diverse residential neighborhoods, a historic business district, and more green space than any other district in Boston. It’s up to us – the residents, businesses, schools, and government – to keep our community looking its best.

Litter is dangerous to human health, to animals, and to the environment. It also sends the message that littering is acceptable, which just leads to more litter.  Over time this can lead to an increase in crime and a decrease in the property values and quality of life in our community. Let’s all do our part to make sure this doesn’t happen in Hyde Park!

  • If you see a piece of litter, pick it up. Make it a personal goal to pick up one piece of trash every time you go out. Think how effective this could be on a larger scale, if everyone would take this one small step towards creating a cleaner community.
  • Do what you can to keep your property and the sidewalks around your home or business clean and free of trash.
  • Put your trash out at the curb in sealed trash barrels and not bags, which can be ripped open by animals or the elements.
  • Don’t overstuff trash barrels, recycling bins and dumpsters to the point where trash can fall out or be carried off by animals.
  • Report problem areas to the City of Boston by calling 311 or using the free, and easy to use, BOS:311 app.
  • Take part in a community clean-up day.
  • Start a neighborhood trash patrol group that meets weekly or monthly to pick up trash in your area.  This is a great way to get to know your neighbors, and to build community and community pride. Plus, it’s a great way to get outside in the fresh air for some exercise.

For information on how and where to obtain recycling bins, visit: boston.gov/departments/public-works/recycling-boston.

Food waste is collected and turned into compost and clean energy. Compost enriches soil, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and recycles nutrients. Learn more at https://www.boston.gov/departments/public-works/food-waste
