Hilltop Action Coalition hosts neighborhood cleanup Saturday

On Sat., Aug. 13, the City of Tacoma and the Hilltop Action Coalition will host a neighborhood cleanup from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The cleanup is specifically for those who live between Division Avenue and S. 15th Street, between Tacoma Avenue and Sprague Avenue, or between S. 15th and S. 28th streets between Tacoma Avenue and State Street. Homeowners and renters in single-family and duplex residences in this area are encouraged to remove junk and beautify their property on that day as part of the collaborative neighborhood cleaning. Volunteers and staff from the City will accept items for disposal at the Caballeros Club, 1516 South 28th St., and Evergreen State College, 1210 6th Ave. All that is required to dump is a proof of residence in the neighborhood such as a driver’s license or current utility bill. Items that can’t be dumped include material from a business; cars, motorcycles, campers or boat parts; truck canopies, trailers, boats or recreational vehicles; daily household garbage; hazardous waste; riding mowers; and animal carcasses. A massive cleanup requires the work of many, if you are interested in volunteering, call Gay Springer at (253) 651-5022.
