The City of Danville is promoting a Clean Up, Fix Up, and Paint Up campaign in May. During this month, residents are encouraged to join their neighbors to help clean up their communities.
The goal of Make Danville Shine is to encourage every resident to focus on maintenance, upkeep and beautification of their property and to assist neighbors who may not be able to do so due to age or disability. This cleanup campaign is a big step in the City’s blight eradication efforts.
There are many ways to get involved with Make Danville Shine. Individuals, neighborhood groups, churches, civic organizations and youth groups are all encouraged to participate. Keep an eye on this page and the Facebook Page for more information on events and incentives. If you have any questions or would like to discuss ways to be involved, please contact Jackie Wells.
Throughout the month of May, the Public Works Department will allow oversized piles of separated yard waste and household debris to be placed at residential curbsides for collection. It also will waive the cost of tire disposal for up to four tires per household. By appointment, crews will collect at no charge heavy debris such as bricks, rock and cinder blocks. For neighborhood cleanups, groups can make an appointment for the use of roll-off containers. Appointments also can be made for grapple “bucket” truck collections. To make appointments for these services please call 434-799-5245.
