In the near future I will be making some additions to the site, including a photo gallery of my personal Detroit pictures, as well as a gallery with user submitted photos, and I would like to set up a section where you can submit your stories about Detroit, good or bad, for everyone to read. If you have any photos, stories, suggestions, comments, or anything you’d like to share, please submit it to us by using the Contact form.
I Read an Interesting article earlier today about some new information regarding the Manoogian Mansion party, you can read it HERE. What do you think of the whole thing? Personally, I don’t doubt one bit that Kwame had the tapes destroyed and Tamara Green murdered.
If you’ve ever driven through Detroit, surely you’ve seen a mountain of old tires blocking your way, a boat or 2 on the sidewalk, and bags of burnt garbage on every corner. Many blame the city for having inadequate municipal services such as garbage pick up and recycling centers, but the city does have designated days for trash pick up and will remove bulk debris weight up to 1,000 pounds 4 times a year from the same residence. Any illegal dumping can be reported by calling the DPW Solid Waste Division at 313-224-4636.
People have been saying that things are being cleaned up in the city, but from what I can tell in my last visit to Detroit 2 years ago, nothing has changed outside of the immediate downtown area. I have noticed that some landmark trash heaps had been removed since my last visit, but new ones also popped up, so really, it seems they aren’t getting anywhere. I will be visiting Detroit later this year and filming “a Tour Of Detroit’s Ghetto: Part 4″, and I suspect it will look just as it did on my last visit.
I will say that the Detroit’s recycling centers seem very inadequate to serve a population it’s size. Here is a map of the entire city’s recycling facilities:
Note that there is only one facility to take hazardous household waste for the entire city! Unbelievable.
