Dumpsters will be available. The dumpster locations and regulations will be announced later.
The commission will provide trash bags, vest, and other needed supplies. Civic, church, school, and community organizations are encouraged to participate in force. Groups or individuals may select an area of the city to target for clean up, or the commission will have suggested areas.
