Spring cleaning isn’t just for homes and garages – it’s for communities. The City of Tallapoosa is hosting again this year a Citywide Clean Up Event in conjunction with Keep Haralson Beautiful “Landfill Partnership Day” which is scheduled for the same day. The City-Wide Cleanup Day will include volunteers armed with plastic bags combing through parks, along ditches, fence lines, and neighborhoods in the community picking up trash. Keep Haralson Beautiful will provide volunteers with tools like gloves, bags, and litter grabbers for volunteers to use during the event.
“This is a great way to help clean up our community,” said Mayor Jones. “It’s a great community service project for groups, especially youth groups, and teams, as well as getting groups and teams from businesses together to spend a few hours during the week or on a Saturday morning cleaning up an area of town.”
Residents can register with a group to clean up a designated area or just show up at City Hall and be assigned to an area on May 6th. Registration in advance is recommended for a t-shirt. T-shirts and supplies are available while supplies last.
