Cleanup Events

Neighborhood cleanup events are a partnership between the City (the Departments of Public Safety and Public Works) and neighborhood associations in an effort to clean up properties by getting rid of unused items and junk. These events are very popular with the community because not only do people get to dispose of unwanted items for free and make their properties look better, they often become social events with neighbors. Some neighborhoods even coordinate garage sales or donation collection campaigns around the cleanup events.

Keep a safer home and a safer community by using fewer hazardous products in your home and dispose of unwanted or outdated products safely and legally.
