TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The City of Terre Haute has announced the date for this year’s spring city-wide clean-up.
This year’s spring city clean-up will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on April 29. As the city organizes clean-ups every year in the fall and spring, volunteers are needed. The City of Terre Haute encourages residents to volunteer and help to take care of their neighborhoods and communities.
The volunteers will meet in the south parking lot of the former Terre Haute Police Department and are advised to enter through Orchard Street. Volunteers will then be given a route map, gloves, bags, and snacks.
The clean-up will focus on several targeted areas throughout the city. Businesses, churches, schools, and other organizations are encouraged to bring a group of people to assist in the clean-up.
Volunteers can put their full bags in the open-top dumpsters in the former Terre Haute Police Department parking lot. However, any hazardous waste including but not limited to refrigeration units, chemicals, tires, and batteries, will not be accepted.
Terre Haute wants to remind all citizens to be good to the environment by cleaning up around their own property, street, and alleys. Those that are interested in volunteering or have any other questions about the April 29th city-wide cleanup can contact the Mayor’s office at 244-2303.
