Great Indy Clean-up April 7th

KIB’s Great Indy Cleanup is an anti-litter program designed to combat heavy litter and debris that has accumulated in public spaces such as streets, alleys, greenspaces and waterways. The 2012 Great Indy Cleanup program includes a citywide effort in the month of April.

The Great Indy Cleanup program runs weekends from April through October, and helps neighborhood and/or community based organizations remove litter and debris from areas in and around their community. Dumpsters are available as well as trash bags and gloves while supplies last. Community groups may sign up for up to two cleanups per year. These are weekend cleanups only and should focus on litter and illegal dumping in streets, alleys and vacant lots. Please remember, the dumpster provided is not for personal use (cleaning out garages, basements, homeowner association property, etc.) or the personal use of volunteers/neighbors. Disposal of the collected trash is donated by South Side Landfill, and is intended for cleanup of public spaces only. Failure to comply jeopardizes the neighborhood’s ability to benefit from these donated resources in the future.
