SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) –The City of Sullivan has been assessing the results of its first month-long City Wide Cleanup that took place throughout the month of July.
Citizens were encouraged to utilize this free service and were invited to bring authorized items/trash to the City Garage to be properly disposed of, resulting in more than 42.5 tons of trash collected.
“It has been exciting to see the results of this year’s City Wide Cleanup,” Mayor Clint Lamb said. “To witness how the community came together, utilized this service and took initiative in cleaning up our city shows that Sullivan truly does take time to care.”
Every year, the city of Sullivan has a cleanup over the course of a weekend or two; however, this year was the first year for a month-long initiative. Of the record 42.5 tons of trash collected, 304 total participating vehicles were counted in dropping off items.
