Community clean-up to tackle galloping glop this Saturdayby Pima County News on Oct. 15, 2012, under Community Development & Neighborhood Conservation, Health, Parks & Recreation, Pima County, Public safety, Southern Arizona, Tucson
Grab a friend, some gloves and the trash bags and do your part to help tackle the refuse and litter that accumulates over time in the alleys, residential streets and neighborhood parks.
Residents throughout Pima County and Tucson will be cleaning up their yards and neighborhoods in the Operation Clean Sweep anti-litter campaign held on Oct. 20.
“Neighborhoods are key in helping us create a vibrant, healthy future,” said Pima County Supervisor Ray Carroll. “In working together, we can not only make them safer, cleaner and more livable, but we can build relationships that strengthen connections with one another.”
Board of Supervisors Chairman Ramón Valadez agreed. “This is a wonderful opportunity to not only make the community cleaner and more beautiful, but it is a chance to offer a helping hand to one another at the same time.”
The one-day event is supported by a host of governments and community organizations, including Pima County, the City of Tucson, Green Things, the Tucson Metro Chamber, Tucson Regional Economic Opportunities and Tucson Clean & Beautiful.
Residents are encouraged to keep safety in mind.
Please refrain from picking up trash along streets with speed limits higher than 25 miles per hour and be watchful of other threats to public safety, from snakes and insects, to hypodermic needles and medical waste. Don’t forget the water and sunscreen.
