Citywide CleanUp Day This Saturday

As part of the Neighborhood Beautification initiative, advanced by the City Council, a CityWide CleanUp Day is planned to encourage Spring Cleaning on Saturday, March 29.

Community Watch groups with registered block parties will have trash dumpsters delivered to their neighborhoods to assist in clean up efforts. Registered parties will also be visited by the “Clean Team” with information, giveaways and drawings.

Additionally, everyone is invited to the "CleanUp Central" location at Don Showman Park, Valwood at Heartside Place, that will feature trash and recycling containers, free electronics recycling opportunities (for monitors, TVs, printers and such), concessions, a bounce house, consultation with Code Enforcement personnel and with Parks Landscape Manager Pam Smith. There will also be pets available for adoption from the Farmers Branch Animal Shelter and a giveaway of Spring color, roses and trees (while supplies last). Hours on the “Clean Team” and on “CleanUp Central” will be from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. that day.

In association with the CleanUp Day event, free classes will be held inside the Community Recreation Center, adjacent to the Don Showman site at 14050 Heartside Place. Speakers from the Dallas County Master Gardeners Speakers Bureau will address landscaping and lawn issues:

10 a.m. – Water Wise Gardening by Janet Smith

11 a.m. – Seasonal Color Year Round by Diana Harris

12 noon – Composting by Jane Bartosiewicz

1 p.m. – Turf Management by James Hatcher

All classes are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is requested by calling the Community Recreation Center at 972-247-4607.

For more information, call 972-919-2634.
