Located southeast of Grand Rapids, the Fuller Avenue neighborhood gives residents a great place to call home. With more than 2,000 people calling this neighborhood home, it is filled with great homes and happy people. Over the years, the neighborhood has gone through many positive changes and residents continue to work together to maintain the positive growth.
One way the community has made an effort to improve is by holding a “dumpster day.” On dumpster day, the community is welcome to bring their unwanted items to be discarded and removed from the neighborhood. If items are too large for community members to remove, Fuller Avenue Neighbors Association board members will pick them up for you. This has been a effective way to help improve the visual aspect of the community making it a more desirable area to live in.
