INDIANAPOLIS – (April 13, 2011) – Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. (KIB) provides residents who do not belong to a neighborhood organization/group the opportunity to participate in the citywide Great Indy Cleanup. Individuals can visit any YMCA of Greater Indianapolis, Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library, or PNC Bank branch through the month of April, and receive a trash bag and gloves, compliments of KIB. Individuals simply fill the bag with litter from anywhere in their community and place the bag with their weekly trash pickup.
The Great Indy Cleanup is a partnership between KIB and the City of Indianapolis to reduce the amount of litter throughout the city. These programs function with the belief that gathering together to clean Indy’s neighborhoods helps to foster pride in communities, develop relationships amongst neighbors, and deter crime, making Indianapolis a healthier and more beautiful place to live.
The Great Indy Cleanup is made possible by the City of Indianapolis, Covanta Energy, South Side Landfill, Republic Services, and Kroger. For more information on KIB’s efforts to beautify the city, or to learn how you can help, please visit us at www.greatindycleanup.com.
