Neighborhood Garage Sale/Clean up/Bulk-Pick-Up

The City will help advertise for a neighborhood Garage Sale for Southern Hills neighbors to kick-off their spring cleaning by selling their unwanted items for some extra cash. The neighborhood garage sale will take place Thursday, May 14 through Friday, May 15.  To include your residence, neighbors are asked to contact the volunteer office at 296-2433.

Volunteers will then assist in a second clean up day in this neighborhood on Saturday, May 16. Waste Management will also be available to remove any bulk trash items residents would like to dispose of.  Residents in need of help with yard maintenance should contact the volunteer office at 296-2433.  Volunteers that would like to help with the cleanup should contact the volunteer office as well.  This is a great opportunity for faith-based organizations, school groups, service clubs and scout groups to get involved with community service!

June – July
