Tom Watkins Neighborhood Cleanup @ Williams Elementary
Apr 6 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm

Residents and/or property owners in the Tom Watkins neighborhood are invited to participate in the fall neighborhood cleanup. The City and the neighborhood association encourages residents to take advantage of this free and convenient opportunity to dispose of trash, brush and metal.

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 cleanups take place outside, rain or shine. Curbside pickup is available, but fees may apply.

Need to schedule a curbside pickup? Contact Marty Mowery at 417-864-7239.
