North Buffalo Green Team

There is a clean-up movement growing in North Buffalo that needs your help. is organizing a monthly meet-up where residents and business owners take to the street to clean up Hertel Avenue. The organization is providing all of the cleanup supplies, including garbage bags and gloves. All you need to do is show up and pitch in to clean up the street.

The organizers are calling the cleaning squad Green Team. The first gathering to take place will occur on Monday, October 27th at Belsito’s, 1368 Hertel Avenue from 6:30-7:30pm. After the cleanup effort, the volunteers will meet back at Belsito’s for a “post-cleanup Happy Hour” ($4 gets volunteers a drink and appetizers).

If you are able to volunteer for the effort, click here. If you can’t make it this time, consider chipping in for future cleanup efforts.

Now that Hertel Avenue has a Green Team, can we please get one for Grant Street?
