West Central Cleanup Volunteers Needed

Alicia Ayars, Community Programs Coordinator

Are you looking for a great way to help your community?

The City of Spokane is looking for 70 volunteers for the 2016 West Central Cleanup  that will be held on Saturday, October 22nd from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Volunteers will help residents remove trash from the streets, alleyways and yards. The cleanup is scheduled for seven designated blocks bound by West Boone Avenue to Bridge Street and A Street/Summit Boulevard to North Elm Street.

The Office of Neighborhood Services staff has created several partnerships to help make this cleanup effort a success.  The City of Spokane Solid Waste Department is one of those partnerships, they will be working alongside volunteers to help remove unwanted yard waste, garbage and debris from select resident yards and alleyways.  The Solid Waste Department will be driving three dump trucks around the neighborhood in order to remove trash.

Other partnerships include:

  • RK Appliance who will remove unwanted appliances for residents for free.
  • Union Gospel Mission is partnering with the City for this event to remove unwanted boats.  The boats must come with a trailer. The boat and the trailer must be licensed.
  • City of Spokane Code Enforcement Department to remove unwanted vehicles for those who qualify.
  • Other sponsors include The Inlander, No-Li Brewery, and SNAP.

If you live within the boundaries of this project and would like to learn more about the event and how we can work with you please contact Alicia Ayars at aayars@spokanecity.org, 509.625.6780 or Katie Myers at kmyers@spokanecity.org, 509.625.6733.
