The annual “Countywide Cleanup” has been scheduled from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 9 at all Parker County precinct barns.
All Parker County residents are encouraged to clean up their personal property and, if possible, form neighborhood groups now to clean and mow roadsides, public areas and assist disabled persons in cleaning around their homes.
“This is an excellent opportunity to meet your neighbors and enhance the formation of networks throughout the county, which can actively support a number of worthwhile projects from crime watch to helping neighbors in need,” said a release from the county.
Cleanup day is for private citizens, not commercial disposal. Residents are required to bring some form of proof of residency, as the clean up is for Parker County residents only.
Commissioners' precinct barns will have areas or receptacles designated for the following items:
aluminum, iron, glass etc.
tires (rims removed)
dried paint cans
lumber, limbs and brush
batteries, oil filters and oil
No flammable liquids, shingles, paint or chemicals will be accepted. As a courtesy to workers, residents are asked to separate items and bag then securely to speed unloading and reduce labor. Do not expect workers to unload loose garbage.
