Help Clean Up Amarillo!
Caught your attention didn't I? Hope so, because this is something you should know about.
National Cleanup Day is coming September 18th, and the City of Amarillo is participating in a major way!
You ever drive through a neighborhood, whether it be yours or not, and think to yourself "wow, there's so much trash everywhere". Well that's what National Cleanup Day is all about. Making our neighborhoods and community shine once again!
City of Amarillo's Director of Public Works Donny Hooper said, "National Cleanup Day will be a great opportunity for Amarillo residents to improve not only their respective neighborhoods, but the entire city".
Now obviously, this can't be done with your cooperation. The city is most definitely doing their part as they'll have heavy equipment and personnel working in alleys, which are usually the spots that are dirtiest in any neighborhood.
City of Amarillo has also teamed up with Republic Services, and they'll be providing roll-off containers in each quadrant of the city as well as personnel to help with the cleanup. They're also adding 24 containers to help cover the entire community.
If you would like to volunteer to help, you can reach out to Torie BenShushan at (806) 378-6289, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
