Posted: Thursday, October 30, 2008 11:22 am
Martin Mayor Randy Brundige and the Martin City Board have announced that Nov 10 through 15 have been designated as City Fall Clean-up Days in Martin. UTM Recycles! will hold a community recycle collection event on Nov 15.
During the clean-up week on each ward’s usual brush pick up day the City Public Works Department will collect at curbside all debris that can be accepted in the city’s landfill.
These items include: construction material, brush and limbs, and wood. Items should be curbside early on the day of pick up. No hazardous materials will be accepted.
Residents can improve the landscape by cleaning up their yard, their neighborhood or a public place.
Groups or individuals wanting to be involved in litter pick up can call Martin Beautiful Chair Marvin Downing at 587-6054 for suggestions.
The Martin Beautiful Committee is helping coordinate the clean up effort. Community members are encouraged to recycle.
UTM Recycles! accepts glass bottles of any color, all plastic including bags, aluminum cans, paper and cardboard, steel cans, scrap metal, used clothing in good shape, eyeglasses, cell phones, and ink cartridges.
On Nov 15 items will be accepted at the recycling barn located behind the University of Tennessee at Martin motor pool at the north end of Moody Street from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
