What is the "Mattucci Project"?
We are volunteers helping eachother build cleaner and safer communities. The way the Mattucci Project works is that a group of volunteers will come by your street and pick up trash, remove weeds, trim overgrowth and hand out educational materials.
Most property owners believe this is usually what we pay taxes for, but in cities like Los Angeles there is the Los Angeles Municipal Code, Chapter VI, Section 62.104 which puts the responsibility on the property owner. Also, with budget cuts and overall economic conditions we feel that all of us need to stay involved with maintaining and improving our streets, one curb at a time. Nothing wrong with picking up the neighbors trash. Our goal is to encourage property owners to start helping each other in maintaining curb appeal.
Remember that most prospective buyers or renters will make a decision about the property by the time they drive up to it. Businesses also tend to do better in cleaner and more appealing conditions. Better business, means more jobs.
But more importantly we want to help those who can't afford or aren't capable of taking care of their front yards. We help both residential and commercial property owners or occupants.
Our philosophy is that it doesn't matter whose trash it is, or who is responsible for what. We just take care of it and encourage others to do the same.

May 4, 2013 Clean Up Day
Fun day for the volunteers of the Mattucci Project. Today we revisited a large commercial site along Pacific Coast Hwy in Torrance, CA. To be exact we cleaned up a 200 foot section of sidewalk and gutters along beautiful Pacific Coast Hwy. Amazing how many weeds grow back in just a few months. It is great to know I can still count on my loyal volunteers to come out and show the world how clean the community can be if only everyone did their part. Well, we are here to pick up the slack. Good job Volunteers!!!!
February 3rd Clean Up Day
Load of costruction trash left in an alley creates a dangerous situation, especially when there are kids around playing. I remind the public to please respect our laws and especially your neighbors. When your home or business are looking bad, you are making everyone around you look bad. If you are not able, or just don't wish to deal with it, then let the Mattucci Project help you. It's FREE, no judgement or questions asked. We are volunteers helping eachother build cleaner and safer communities.
December 10th Clean Up Day
Today the task was simple. Throw out old furniture from a residents front yard. The furniture was sitting there for months waiting to be picked up. It was an eye sore and the Mattucci Project took care of it. We always encourage people to help the neighbors in need. Sometimes a little curb appeal can go a long way.
October 30th Clean Up Day
Today the Mattucci Project cleaned a section of Torrance Blvd that needed some attention. Of course we may not solve the problem of people throwing personal trash on the ground, but we believe that cleaning the gutters and sidewalks is just another way of leading by example.
August 31st Clean Up Day
Today was a rather interesting day with the Mattucci Project. The daughter of a terminally ill lady called us to help out with their front yard and of course we agreed. What was different about today is that the daughter told us that her mother may only have a few more weeks to live and that she was always proud of her yard until she became ill about 7 months ago and had to stop taking care of the yard. What was heart breaking is the fact that the daughter wanted her mom to see her yard neat and in order for the last few days or weeks of her life. Today I was reminded as to how precious our lives are and what an important role our families have in our happiness. It also reminded me what the Mattucci Project is all about and what a great feeling it gives me especially days like today. To top it all off it was the lady's birthday today and she told us we made her day by showing up and helping her out. What she didn't know is that she actually made our day.

The clean up efforts near the corner of Pacific Coast Hwy and Ocean Ave in Torrance
Once again the Mattucci Project hits the streets of Torrance to help clean the front portion of what looked like an abandoned vacant lot. This time around Aurelio Mattucci had 5 volunteers show up and we want to thank each of them for all their hard work. Among the volunteers we had Chris Davis, Nick Donato, Cheryl Clark, and William Ho, all part of Mattucci Real Estate. We also had Charlene Nishimura of the Torrance Tribune as one of our volunteers. As always we thank the many volunteers and especially Charlene for driving such a long way just to help out.

Update July 12, 2012
The Mattucci Project once again has shown how much they truly care about the community. On July 12th a group of Mattucci Project volunteers returned to the home on the 22000 block of Anza Ave in Torrance to finish up the project of removing weeds and overgrowth. The volunteers were able to remove 18 trash bags full. Homeowner "Dolly" said she was amazed as to how nice her place looked once we were done. List of Volunteers included Nick Donato, Cheryl Clark, Virginia West, Chris Davis, Eli Pilowsky, Martella Keniry and Aurelio Mattucci. Baby Giuseppe came to look this time around. As always we thank the many volunteers not only for showing up to work, but also in believing in the project.

The Mattucci Project helps out in clearing weeds and overgrown landscape on a home on the 22000 block of Anza Ave in the City of Torrance. Aurelio Mattucci and his crew were able to beautify the curb appeal of this home in just 30 minutes. It's amazing how a little bit of effort can bring such joy to one household. This is what the Mattucci Project is all about.

It is amazing how much exercise we get when we are out there burning up in the Hot California Sun. No worries, we had plenty of water with us. I am especially proud of the volunteers that came as our first timers. It is truly amazing what people can accomplish when they come together as one. Another Mattucci Project coming soon.

DAY 1 - was a big hit. The Mattucci Project with the help of 15 of his loyal agents was able to clean up over 3 blocks of 9th Street in San Pedro. After removing a truck load of trash and weeds, we realized that this will be an ongoing effort and we will need some extra help. I would like to personally thank the volunteers that showed up this morning and I wish to see more show up at our next clean up day. Check out some of the photos below. Some volunteers aren't yet on the website.
