CITY LAUNCHES THE GREAT INDY SPRING CLEANUP

INDIANAPOLIS -Mayor Greg Ballard today announced the Great Indy Spring Cleanup, a citywide effort to beautify and strengthen our communities.  The Great Indy Spring Cleanup aims to achieve litter abatement through neighborhood-driven initiatives.

“Every resident, every family can make a difference,” said Mayor Greg Ballard. “Let’s all come together, take pride, and clean up streets, alleys and public places to make our city a brighter and safer place to live, work and play.”

The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Inc., with support from the Department of Public Works and Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Development, are coordinating with neighborhood associations and groups across the City to organize cleanup efforts during the month of April and continuing through October. For information on organizing a cleanup in your neighborhood, visit www.greatindycleanup.com.

Now through April 16, visit your neighborhood Marion County Public Library, YMCA, or National City Bank branch to pick up a pair of gloves and a trash bag to clean up the litter in your neighborhood and participate in Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Inc.’s “Every Litter Bit Helps” program. Simply dispose of the bag with your weekly trash pickup. Visit www.greatindycleanup.com for more information.

Join the thousands of volunteers who have signed up to combat heavy litter and debris that has accumulated in public spaces. Participate in the Great Indy Spring Cleanup!
