RONAN MCKENZIE FOR UNIVERSAL STANDARD Who gets to look like a fantasy? It’s a contentious question for fashion, a realm where exclusion and power are often seamed together, and “beauty” becomes defined by limitations instead of ideals. That’s why today’s kind of exciting. It marks the launch of Rodarte x Universal Standard, a collaboration that […]

Hendrik Telfer, Alejandro Rodarte, Dion Deng, Luca Szabo  and Chris Brokate are working together with the homeless to keep the environment and river free of trash. (Contributed photo) The struggle to create and maintain an environmentally-aware community in Mendocino County has proven to be more difficult than it seems. Four seniors at Ukiah High have recognized this and as a result, have focused their senior projects on helping create a way for the homeless population to aid in the effort to keep the environment clean and help pick up trash. Eighteen-year-old Luca Szabo is credited as the initiator of the project, although he is joined by fellow seniors Hendrik Telfer, Alejandro Rodarte and Dion Deng. Since senior projects are typically community service oriented, Szabo’s first idea was to create an effort that revolved around the homeless community in Ukiah. An adviser he had worked with in the past referred him to Chris Brokate, founder of the Clean River Alliance. Brokate, much like the four Ukiah High seniors, identified that trash pickup was a problem that could potentially be solved by involving the homeless. In 2014, he began the Clean River Alliance as a trash program for the homeless in the lower river area. The alliance has been engaging with the homeless population in Guerneville, Forestville, Cloverdale and surrounding areas for the past five years. The alliance functions by providing the homeless with trash bags so they can then go out, collect trash, or clean up their encampments. The alliance picks up the filled bags of trash at a later time. The effort subsequently evolved to offer regular trash days to the homeless where this process could occur. During the first year, the homeless helped gather 35,000 pounds of trash and last year that number rose to 120,000 pounds. “Fast forward to last November, Luca called me and explained how he and his fellow seniors wanted to create a similar program up here in Ukiah,” explains Brokate. A new addition to the program that Szabo, Telfer, Rodarte and Deng have developed is the involvement of service providers for the homeless in the community. The four have visited MCAVHN House, Plowshares, and the Inland Winter Shelter to distribute bags for them to give to the homeless who already come to their locations. Telfer also used his graphic design skills to create a map that displays the five locations throughout Ukiah where the homeless can drop the bags of trash they fill. Mendo Recycle has committed to pick up the bags every Thursday. Brokate says, “What’s happening here is a model that can be duplicated throughout the country. Creating a trash pickup for the homeless where we aren’t the point person allows us to establish a program like this in a community, walk away from it, and have it still be sustained.” He admits that they have been using this project to help figure out the loose ends so that other towns can have a functioning example to follow. Many communities already have service providers that engage with the homeless, which means that creating this program would simply be a matter of adding a bag depository station. Brokate describes the model as a “new way of doing something that has already been successful.” In Ukiah, collaboration between the city, nonprofit groups and service providers has already produced a positive result. Mayor Maureen Mulheren explains that it is more cost-effective to have volunteers or individuals pick up trash as opposed to sending out government employees to do so. Without government employees in the equation, the cost of trash pickup is the bag and transport to the transfer station. Accordingly, that keeps expenses lower for taxpayers but serves the need of keeping the river clean. Mulheren is also interested in supporting the project so that it can continue even after the senior project has concluded. Szabo, Telfer, Rodarte and Deng also plan to stay involved to figure out how to keep the program running. Szabo comments, “This is one of the most necessary, humanitarian efforts that we need in Ukiah and the United States because we need to take better care of our homeless.” Szabo and Brokate have already given out many bags to the homeless, meaning that the program’s success is now dependent on participation from the homeless community.
