The Neighborhood Services Department is implementing a neighborhood clean-up day called PARTNER (Pro Active Residential Teams for Neighborhood Environment Restoration).
Saturday, October 21, 2017 8 a.m. - 11 a.m. or until the dumpsters are filled.
This program involves city employees and volunteers going into a mature neighborhood to help residents eliminate clutter and provide a cost-effective and convenient way to do some extra cleaning. The City is partnering with Waste Connections who is donating three 30-yard dumpsters and one 30-yard metal recycling dumpster. The city is also collaborating with First Baptist Church of Burleson and Kerr Middle School for convenient dumpster locations. The City’s Public Works Department will have equipment to assist with hauling items to the dumpsters.
The goal for the neighborhood clean-up initiative is to create a sense of community and bring people together. The clean-up initiative serves not only as a practical purpose, such as cleaning and revitalizing an area, but we are hoping people will leave this event with a greater sense of unity, friendship, and purpose. We hope that participants develop a new respect for one another and sense of pride in their community after the clean-up event.
Each volunteer participant will be required to sign a liability release form the day of the event. Minors must be accompanied by an adult. T-shirts will be available the day of the event or volunteers can pick up their shirts one (1) week prior to the event from the City Service Center located at 725 SE John Jones. City staff and volunteers will meet at 7:30 a.m. on October 21, 2017, at the back parking lot of Kerr Middle School at the corner of SE Dian Street and Irene Street. The City will provide mosquito repellent, water, gloves and trash bags. If you have any questions please contact Beverly Huntsman at 817-426-9832.
