[ARCHIVED] City’s Annual Citywide Cleanup Scheduled for Saturday, October 4

The City of Petersburg will host their annual citywide cleanup event on Saturday, October 4 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Residents are asked to bring trash and other debris to the drop-off location in their respective Ward. Residents must display a current Petersburg decal.

“The City of Petersburg encourages all residents to recycle because it is a tremendous cost savings, helps our economic development, prevents pollution, reduces greenhouse gas emissions and fosters a sense of community involvement and responsibility,” comments City Manager, William E. Johnson, III. “This city wide cleanup event is a great opportunity for the community to help us reach our goal of four thousand tons to be collected and recycled.”

For the first time, the citywide cleanup will feature electronic recycling and document shredding on site. Electronic cycling and document shredding will only be available at the School Board Administrative offices on E. South Boulevard. This service is for residents only, not businesses.

Residents can organize a neighborhood cleanup at any time. The neighborhood must select a Neighborhood Coordinator; determine a location for the cleanup; the Neighborhood Coordinator calls the Central Virginia Waste Management Authority (CVWMA) at (804) 359-8413 to schedule a delivery of a container; place waste in container; call CVWMA to have container picked up. There is no charge for this service to residents.
