The Taylor Community Cleanup, now in its second year, will take place on October 22 from 8 a.m. - Noon in the neighborhood encompassing parts of W. MLK Blvd., W. Doak St, and Dickey St. The event also coincides with our semi-annual City-Wide Cleanup, which will take place on the same day at the Welch St. location and Main St. recycling center from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m.
As with the last two Community Cleanups, the City has partnered with local civic groups, organizations and volunteers to beautify Taylor and build a sense of community pride. Last April, there were more than 115 volunteers who participated in the Cleanup who made a significant impact in the neighborhood.
A couple of exciting additions to this year’s cleanup include a Tire Amnesty Program and a service project at Doak Street Ballfields. Residents in the cleanup neighborhood will be able to drop off unwanted tires for disposal free of charge and volunteers can come out to beautify the ball fields in conjunction with the Park’s department’s Arbor Day project.
If your organization, church, civic group or you individually would like to volunteer, contact City Hall at 512-352-3675 or visit www.taylortx.gov/communitycleanup for more information and join us for a rewarding experience on Oct. 22.
