Getting to the dump is something that few of us often find time to do. Bulky items like; old vacuum cleaners, mattresses, furniture, scrap wood, empty paint cans and cat castles upholstered in blue carpet tend to take up valuable space in our garages and in our homes. Neighborhood Cleanups make disposing of bulky-waste easy and beyond that they serve as community fundraisers. Costs associated with Neighborhood Cleanups vary location to location, but are always less than fees required at the dump and help to fund neighborhood projects and activity.
What’s better than a Neighborhood Cleanup? A Neighborhood Cleanup that also encourages recycling, by creating options to do so, as an alternative to throwing things in the dumpster headed for the landfill. Many neighborhoods take sustainability to heart by recycling everything possible and by creating reuse opportunities (Think “swaps”, yard sales and even “free-piles”).
Below you will find everything you need to get your next Cleanup off the ground. Not interested in coordinating?
