Receiver Mark Adams and California Receivership Group Celebrate Two Decades of Bringing Relief to California Communities Impacted by Nuisance Properties
California Receivership Group was founded twenty years ago, by Receiver Mark Adams, to help the people and communities impacted by nuisance properties. Dilapidated properties cause a number of negative effects that extend far beyond the property line. These include decreasing neighboring property values, compromising physical health and safety, as well as rising crime. In keeping with their mission, CRG celebrated its anniversary by organizing a cleanup of their local beach.
In keeping with their mission, CRG celebrated its anniversary by organizing a cleanup of their local beach. Microplastics, cigarette butts, and larger pieces of refuse are finding their way into the Pacific Ocean and endangering the wildlife we share it with. While making a small dent in this large problem, the CRG team was able to see the effects of single-use containers on the environment, and how challenging they are to deal with when they break down into the tiny pieces that cause so much destruction to marine life. The benefits of a beach cleanup surpass the physical removal of trash; the activity encourages participants to think critically about the waste we each generate. CRG partnered with LA Waterkeeper for their cleanup, and there are many organizations throughout California that will help if you’re considering a cleanup of your own.
