PARSONS, KANSAS -

The City of Parsons has proclaimed April 1-30, 2015 as Spring Clean-Up Month. During the month of April, residents are encouraged to get out help a neighbor or a gather a group of friends and clean-up the neighborhoods. The purpose of the event is to spark community pride and help your neighbor.

“All year long, we offer Bulk Trash Service. This is just one more way for people to get involved and utilize this service. In order to participate in the clean-up, residents will be required to call 421-7010 and schedule a bulk trash pick-up (before Mondays at 9 a.m.). Bulk Trash policies do need to be followed, and they can be found online under utilities at www.parsonsks.com,” said Kari West, City Public Information Officer.

Bulk Trash is a service included in the monthly city sanitation fee, however there are some instances that require additional charges (special charges for tires, appliances with coolants, etc.)

Things residents or civic groups can do during the month of April to help Clean-Up Parsons and promote community pride include, but are not limited to:

· Get to know your neighbor and offer to help them clean up their yard! 

· Organize a neighborhood trash patrol and pick up litter

· Offer organizational help to friends and family

· Offer to help maintain flowerbeds or help plant flowers

· Step-up and volunteer in the community, there are lots of options!

City Manager Debbie Lamb encourages residents to take community and civic pride, particularly in regards to improving the overall appearance of our community.

“We have a lot of dedicated citizens, and through continuous effort, hard work and commitment we are all working very hard to keep public and private spaces beautiful,” Lamb said.

Don't forget, call in your spring clean-up efforts to the City Bulk Trash Program every Monday before 9 a.m., at 421-7010 and leave a message. Complete details about the Bulk Trash Program can be found at http://www.parsonsks.com/DocumentCenter/View/213
