Volunteers asked to sign up for Community Cleanup Day

Large map-CleanupArea

The annual City of Taylor Spring Community Cleanup Day is set for Saturday, April 21 from 8 a.m. to Noon to coincide with national Earth Day on Sunday, April 22. The neighborhood chosen for cleanup is the area on Porter Street and Washburn Street, along 8th Street north to past 11th Street.


Families, scouts, clubs or church groups are asked to volunteer to assist in this cleanup effort. Free food and drinks will be provided for all volunteers, along with safety vests and necessary tools. Each are asked to bring work gloves, if possible, as there are limited sets of gloves available. City staff will work alongside volunteers and direct the work teams. Groups are asked to fill out the Volunteer Application to register their groups, so staff can account for people and provide enough food for everyone.


The project's purpose is to help beautify the chosen neighborhood and build a sense of community pride. The event is held twice per year, in the spring and fall.


The theme of Earth Day 2018 is End Plastic Pollution, with a focus to change human attitude and behavior about plastics and catalyze a reduction in plastic pollution.


Sponsors

Sponsors are also sought for the event, whether with cash donations or in-kind contributions, such as tools and food. Sponsors are rewarded with publicity opportunities, as noted in the Sponsor Application. Those interested may call Lacey Hannes for more information at 512-365-3863.
