A Neighborhood Cleanup is an effective way to work together as a neighborhood in order to instill pride in your property as well as your community. Annually the HAND Department sponsors Neighborhood Cleanups to neighborhoods on a competitive application process. Neighborhood groups that have demonstrated, through their applications, the need and ability to conduct a successful clean-up are awarded a HAND sponsored Neighborhood Cleanup. A key factor is having enough volunteers and good communication within the neighborhood to make the event successful.

The neighborhood organizes the event and provides all the volunteers. HAND provides a garbage truck, hazmat collection, chipper service, tire disposal, scrap metal collection, and safety vests.

 

The Neighborhood Cleanups can be held on one of the following Saturdays: April 4, 18, May 2, 16, 30, June 13, 2020.

 

2020 Applications due by Monday, March 9, 2020 by 4:00 p.m. in the HAND Office in City Hall, Room #130.
