Spring cleaning in Edgewater begins in earnest the weekend of April 28 and 29, as the city stages its Spring Day of Service and Alley Cleanup Day.

On Saturday, April 28, volunteers are needed to provide qualified senior homeowners with basic outdoor chores like raking, window washing, sweeping and small outdoor projects, as part of the annual Spring Day of Service.

Community alley cleanup day follows on Sunday, April 29. Volunteers are asked to meet at 2 p.m. in Memorial Park, on the corner of 25th Avenue and Chase Street, to be assigned alleys to cleanup within the city.

The Monday after, Republic Services and the city will again be offering alleyway pick-up, with the dumpster drop off scheduled the following Saturday, May 5.

See the city website for what can be picked up or dropped off, volunteer signup, and more details: www.edgewaterco.com.
