Yakima Cleanup Program Back For Fall

KNDO

After a successful spring Yakima’s community cleanup events are back for the fall.

Last spring the city, along with the help of community volunteers, picked up and properly disposed of 52 tons of garbage and yard debris, 620 pounds of paper, 120 pounds of plastic, 600 pounds of cardboard and more than 1,500 old tires. This massive cleanup was accomplished during just four Saturdays.

Some people said the community really struggles with graffiti and litter so setting aside days for community cleanup really gives Yakima some spark.

“I really admire their efforts because this is just another opportunity for a lot of our community members to be involved within our community somehow,” said Erica Rodarte.

Just like the spring cleanups the fall events will rotate between each of Yakima’s four city council districts.

The first clean up is on Saturday, September 14th and will target neighborhoods West of 40th avenue. The trash drop off site will be at 75th and Mead Avenue from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
