BUFFALO — The Fall 2017 Community Clean-Up campaign gets under way later this month with a three-day clean-up in the Buffalo Community and the public is invited to take part in helping clean up the community.
The Community Clean-Up campaign is sponsored by the Union County Code Enforcement & Litter Control Department and is designed to clean up the communities of Union County. The campaign moves from community to community with county personnel and volunteers from within and without those communities working together to clean them up.
The first community clean-up of the fall will be in the Buffalo Community Tuesday, Oct. 24-Thursday, Oct. 26 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. each day. The central location for the clean-up effort will be across from the Buffalo Mill Towers. Volunteers are “needed and appreciated” and will be provided with safety vests, gloves, garbage bags, and refreshments. There will also be a dumpster on-site.
In addition to picking up trash along the roads and clearing away undergrowth, the community clean-up will also involve collecting junk items placed out by residents. A flier advertising the campaign states that “if you have junk items to be discarded, please place them on the curb in front of your property. Then leave us a message with your name, location, and phone number by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25 for pick up Thursday, Oct. 26.”
