Take Part in "Operation Clean-up"
Remove unsightly trash in Tower neighborhoods!
Tower District News Staff

Van Ness Village curbs are clean.     TOWER -- In February, Tower District residents have the opportunity to participate in a community-wide effort to rid the area of unwanted trash and debris. The city's Operation Clean-up pickups are slated to begin on Friday, Feb. 15, running through Feb. 22. The actual date for pickup is set by what section Tower residents inhabit.
    Contact the City of Fresno Public Utilities Commission for more information and specific dates at their semi-annual pickups hotline (559)498-1447, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
     Anthony Cresap, spokesman for the Tower Egroups said, "Before and during trash pickups there will be less on-street parking and the danger of hazards, unsightly messes, and debris along street gutters. If you plan to participate in Operation Clean-up please remember a few pieces of street-trash etiquette."

  • Many careless drivers are known to travel at unsafe speeds through Tower thoroughfares. Piles of trash or obstacles which encroach upon the traffic-zone could cause an unnecessary accident and property damage.
  • Many young children live in the Tower and travel the sidewalks and streets to and from school twice a day. Take extra care not to leave sharp objects or boards with nails or screws exposed.
  • Gutters are for drainage, too! Don't forget to place refuse at least 10" from the curb for area drainage in case of wet weather.
  • Keep it organized. Remember that neighbors as well as visitors to the Tower District have to look at it before it gets picked up. The City's of Fresno's Solid Waste Mgmt. crew has the priviledged task of disposing of it. Please do what you can to keep it simple and organized as much as possible.

     "Tower residents should be receiving a City of Fresno flyer regarding Operation Cleanup. The flyer explains the do's-and-don'ts of this golden opportunity to get rid of the types of garbage that doesn't go out weekly," Cresap added. Do your part to keep the Tower District looking clean during Operation Clean-up!
