Open the windows, get out the broom and start pulling those weeds. It’s May and, like so many of us, May-or David Bieter is doing a little Spring cleaning. In fact, he’s proclaiming May http://www.cityofboise.org/Departments/PDS/NewsReleases/page42035.aspx“Spring Clean Boise” Month.
He’s giving us all a leg up on yard work, helping us clean out our garages and, like my husband Bob loves to do, get rid of stuff we’ll never use again (back away from my mom’s table, Bob!).
“Boise is particularly beautiful in the spring,” Bieter said. “I encourage all residents to enhance that beauty even further by organizing projects to make their neighborhoods shine. Just a few hours of work one weekend in May can make a remarkable difference in the livability of our city.”
Put these spring cleaning events on your calendar:
- Community Shred-It Day, Saturday, May 9, to securely dispose of personal records and help prevent identity theft.
- Battery Recycle Day, Saturday, May 16, to provide safe recycling of batteries.
Plus, there’s ahttp://www.cityofboise.org/Departments/PDS/PDF/Neighborhoods/2009_MiniGrants.pdfNeighborhood Mini-Grant Program, to help neighborhood associations with funds to complete non-capital projects that enhance their neighborhood’s livability, such as clean-up projects that benefit the whole neighborhood.
And finally, here’s http://www.cityofboise.org/Departments/PDS/PDF/Neighborhoods/2009_SpringClean_ResourceList.pdf Spring Clean Boise Resource List, to help you find useful homes for unwanted items.
Look for neighborhood groups, churches, and other organizations who will be organizing service projects to maintain or improve neighborhoods. This is a great time to get to know your neighbors by helping with their clean-up projects, too!
