Bold New City Community Cleanup Initiative
love your block logo
Organizing a neighborhood cleanup is a great opportunity to get to know your neighbors and beautify the community at the same time. 

First, be clear on the objectives for your cleanup so you can make the proper arrangements. There are different kinds of cleanups you can consider doing at various times during the year that require different materials, different promotions, and even different kinds of volunteers. Be clear about what your cleanup objective is, who you want or need to participate and how you will dispose of the litter, junk, hazardous materials or recyclables collected. 



Here are a few points to remember:
 
  • For every 2,000 pounds of recycled paper, we conserve 7,000 gallons of chemical-free water.
  • Nearly 84% of household waste can be recycled.Plastic and aluminum takes approximately 500 years to decompose in a landfill.
  • Dumping tires illegally can clog drainage ditches and creeks. 


Join your family, friends, neighbors, city officials, and community for the Bold New City Community Cleanup Initiative.

Sign up and become a volunteer by contacting Constituent Services at 601.960.1084 or Solid Waste at 601.960.0000.


Calling all Neighborhood Associations, Local Churches, Businesses, College Sororities and Fraternities, and other Civic Organizations!
