From May 4 until May 14, the city of Idaho Falls will hold its annual “Clean & Green Citywide Clean-up” event.
Kerry Hammon, Idaho Falls City Public Officer, said in an interview with BYU-Idaho Radio this event is a great opportunity for the people of Idaho Falls to get rid of unwanted items they may have collected throughout the year.
She said this event began almost 10 years ago as a way help keep the city clean as residents began to clean their homes.
The city will provide recycling bins, indoor and outdoor waste containers, and there will be a public shredding day on May 12.
There will be also volunteer opportunities on May 12 to visit the cemetery to help get it ready for Memorial Day.
The Idaho Police Department will also be available to residents who are in need of getting rid of old prescriptions.
“It’s a great opportunity to get rid of unwanted items, and to spruce up our community,” Hammon said. “It’s also a great opportunity to get out there and volunteer, and clean up some of our commentaries in honor of Veteran’s and past community members.”
