Tacoma neighborhood cleanup July 20

Single-family and duplex homeowners and renters in multiple Tacoma neighborhoods are preparing to dispose of unsightly debris from 9 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. on Sat., July 20 at First Creek Middle School, located at 1801 E. 56th St., with the assistance of staff from the City of Tacoma and community volunteers. All that is required to discard debris and other unwanted items is proof of neighborhood residence, such as a driver’s license or current utility bill. Items that cannot be discarded as part of this effort 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. Those interested in supporting this or other upcoming neighborhood cleanups as a volunteer can contact Allyson Griffith with the Neighborhood and Community Services Department’s Community Based Services Division at agriffith@cityoftacoma.org or (253) 591-5119. The City of Tacoma’s full 2013 neighborhood cleanup schedule is available at cityoftacoma.org/cleanup.
