Residents and/or property owners in the Rountree neighborhood are invited to participate in the spring neighborhood clean-up. The City and the neighborhood associations encourage residents to take advantage of this free and convenient opportunity to dispose of trash, brush and leaves. Residents are encouraged to address overgrown fence rows, backyards and alleys adjacent to your property by mowing, cutting down, trimming and disposing of all brush and related debris.
Each year, neighborhood clean-ups serve approximately 900 households and remove over 175 tons of bulk waste (furniture, mattresses, etc.) and brush from Springfield neighborhoods. The clean-ups take place outside, rain or shine. Items accepted are trash, brush, leaves and metal. Curbside pickup is available, however, fees may apply. To schedule a curbside pickup, please contact Peggy Wise at 417-860-8990.
Meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of each month @ 7 p.m. @ University Heights Baptist Church.
