Registration starts for citywide cleanup: Operation Beautification
Is your neighborhood in need of some TLC? The City of Dallas is encouraging neighborhood, religious, community, school and business groups to participate in a citywide Spring cleanup on Saturday, May 16. Registration for Operation Beautification begins today and ends May 11. It’s all in an effort to keep our neighborhoods free of trash/brush, maintain healthy and sustainable neighborhoods and foster civic engagement through community-led cleanups in our neighborhoods.
“Operation Beautification was initiated by the City Council back in 2012 and every year it gets bigger,” said Joe Yanez, Planning & Neighborhood Vitality Coordinator for the City of Dallas. “A total of 134 groups have participated and more than 82 tons of trash has been collected citywide since it all started.”
The City will coordinate with participating groups to provide out-of-schedule trash collection for neighborhoods that choose to join this special event.
Cleanup projects are determined by each participating group.
“I enjoy seeing people of all ages working together to make their neighborhood a better place to live,” Yanez said. “You can see a true sense of accomplishment and pride once they have finished their project.”
