The City of Springfield and Community Partnership of the Ozarks has again contracted with Republic Services to offer neighborhood clean-ups for fall of 2018- spring of 2019.
Heart of the Westside’s cleanup is in September; the six additional fall neighborhood cleanups start Oct.13 with Greater Parkcrest and continue through Nov. 17 with Delaware. See the full schedule. The spring cleanups start March 23, 2019 with Midtown and run through June 1, 2019 with Bissett.
CPO coordinates with the City of Springfield’s Neighborhoods and Planning Office to coordinate and administer cleanup activities in registered neighborhoods in Springfield. These cleanups give Springfield residents the opportunity to dispose of bulky items such as mattresses, furniture, and appliances as well as yard waste, free of cost. In 2017-2018, 17 neighborhoods participated in cleanups with 19 events.
One thousand three hundred sixty-two households were served and 454 curbside pickups were made. Nearly 200 tons of waste in 100 dumpsters, more than 20 tons of scrap metal, 42 dumpsters of yard waste and more than 215 TVs were collected and recycled last year. Additionally, nearly 500 volunteers put in 1,945 volunteer hours during last year’s cleanups!
If you have questions about your neighborhood’s cleanup, or if curbside pickup is available in your neighborhood’s cleanup and you need to make arrangements, please contact your neighborhood cleanup coordinator.
Fees may apply. Call coordinator for details.
