Bartow Great American Cleanup
Saturday, April 22, 2017
The City of Bartow Solid Waste in partnership with Keep Polk County Beautiful, Inc. invites you to participate in this year’s Great American Cleanup Event on Earth Day – Saturday, April 22, 2017 from 8 am-noon at Mary Holland Park in Bartow.
The Great American Cleanup is a nationwide cleanup initiative led by Keep America Beautiful.  This cleanup event has taken place across the country for the past 31 years.  Last year, thousands of volunteers throughout Polk County joined in the cleanup effort.
This cleanup is a community wide effort.  Residents who have personal garbage and large items that need to be disposed of should contact their local waste hauler to schedule arrangements for pick up.
Volunteers are provided with garbage bags, gloves and safety vests.  Those who pre-register may also qualify to receive a free T-Shirt and ticket to Bok Tower Gardens.
For more information on the event or to pre-register to volunteer, contact the City of Bartow Solid Waste Department, (863)534-0181 or email: [email protected]
