Munford gets ready for Pick Up, Fix Up Day | Community Spirit
The City of Munford has scheduled its sixth annual clean-up campaign, “Celebrate Spring! Pick-Up, Fix-Up Munford.”
“The City of Munford is pleased to partner with Keep Tipton County Beautiful to offer its citizens an organized day to come together to beautify our city,” stated Mayor Dwayne Cole. “This is our sixth planned event and the second year we have organized this event in May to celebrate how far we have come since the May Day flood of 2010 – a disaster which brought us together in many ways. This year, we hope for the clean-up to grow in numbers and excitement – continuing the effort of helping others and ensuring the beautification of our community.”
Area churches, businesses, civic groups, scouts, students and citizens are encouraged to participate in the city-wide trash pick-up.
Volunteers are asked to report to City Hall at 1397 Munford Avenue at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 5th. Instructions, door prizes, refreshments and supplies will be given and volunteers will start at an assigned area. Gloves will not be provided. Families and groups with younger volunteers will be assigned areas away from roadside traffic.
The City of Munford has a year-round recycling effort. A recycling bin for the collection of plastics, cardboard and newsprint is located at the south end of the parking lot at Haddad’s Department Store on Crigger Street.
The clean-up event is scheduled in conjunction with Keep Tipton County Beautiful Clean Up activities, and Keep America Beautiful Great American Clean Up, celebrating its twenty-fifth year cleaning, beautifying and improving communities all across America.
