Neighborhood Cleanups Expanded
This month, the City of Tucson’s Neighborhood Clean-up Program will be expanded and will be available to incorporated homeowners’ associations and small, organized groups of neighbors in addition to City of Tucson registered neighborhood associations. This program provides roll-off containers (dumpsters) to assist residents who want to work together to clean-up their neighborhood and is offered through the Environmental Services fees paid by residential customers. Nancy Petersen, Environmental Services Interim Director said, “The program has been used for many years by the City’s Neighborhood Associations, but there are many other residents who would like to pitch in to clean up their neighborhoods, too. We hope that by providing roll-offs and the hauling and disposal, we’ll make it easier for them.” More information about the program is available online. Residents can visit the ES web page at http://cms3.tucsonaz.gov/es/neighborhoodclean-ups or call ES Customer Services at (520) 791-3171. Information for neighborhood associations is available on the HCD website at http://cms3.tucsonaz.gov/hcd/neighborhood-clean-ups.
