Front Yard Fridays

In partnership with Public Works Week, May 21-27, and the Recreation Board’s Spring Clean-Up Event on Saturday, May 27th we would like to invite you to participate in Front Yard Friday on May 26th!

Public Works Week is a busy week for our public works department. Along with the usual work that they do to keep the village beautiful and running smoothly, we have our Electronics Recycling event! All week long we are accepting electronics, furniture, scrap metal, motor oil and more! Folks love this amazing recycling event and often use it as a kick-off for their spring cleaning at home.

As we clean-up inside our homes, we are inviting folks to step outside and pick up around their front yards too. Our public works department cleans up litter all week long and it is one of those seemingly endless tasks. If we all pick up just the little bit in our yards, we reduce the amount that ends up blowing around all over town! While this can be done all week long, Fridays are especially helpful as we go into the weekend when there is not village staff on hand to pick up. We can keep this going all summer long and you may meet a neighbor or two while you are out there!

So, please keep in mind a few great events this week:

Public Works Week – If you see the crew out and about give them a big “Thank You!” for all of their hard work throughout the year.
