Put the shine back in your neighborhood and organize a neighborhood cleanup!!
Neighborhood Cleanup projects can be the first step in insuring all residents recognize the importance to the community of the maintenance of their properties. This can be the first step in improving the quality of life for the neighborhood residents. The City of Tallahassee's Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Affairs Department will help you organize a neighborhood cleanup and will provide garbage bags and pickup sticks as requested. Any city registered Neighborhood Association can participate in this program as long as there are at least 10 volunteers that will participate in the cleanup.
Neighborhood Affairs staff will coordinate with City's Solid Waste Operations staff, who will grant an amnesty day for a neighborhood clean up, picking up all types of items normally excluded from collection, including white goods (major appliances), old tires, etc. All items placed on the right-of-way will be picked up during the neighborhood cleanup.
Volunteers from your neighborhood can make a difference.
For more information, or if you would like to organize a cleanup, please call the Neighborhood Affairs office at 891-3846.
