The city of Savannah will be kicking off their four month long Great Savannah Cleanup with a cleanup of the Cuyler-Brownville and Metropolitan neighborhoods on March 2. Residents from both of the neighborhoods, along with volunteers from a number of civic organizations and the Savannah Youth Council, will help pick up trash, remove graffiti, weed and mulch trees, and conduct a litter survey to track conditions.
The Great Savannah Cleanup Kickoff will begin at 9 a.m. March 2 in Wells Park at 39th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Residents are also invited to participate and drop off old tires at a Tire Roundup that is being held as part of the event Saturday at 37th Street and MLK. There is no charged for disposing old tires and each person can drop off up to four. Only car tires will be accepted.
The Great Savannah Cleanup, which is sponsored by the city of Savannah and Keep Savannah Beautiful in coordination with the Great American Cleanup, will take place from March 2 to June 30. Savannah residents and businesses are encouraged to help organize their own neighborhood cleanups during the Great Savannah Cleanup. The city will provide bags and gloves, and collect and dispose of the trash, if residents provide the labor.
