Instead of gathering in a City Park to start & end the event, we invite volunteers to comb the neighborhoods of Cheney on your own time, any time during the week of October 5-10 , looking for litter. Work in small groups, with members of your immediate household, wearing appropriate face coverings and keeping safe distance away from other people.
This is a positive community event that encourages civic pride for the city and its neighborhoods. It’s just a little different this year!
Volunteers will work on cleaning up a specific area of the city. Choose to work in your own neighborhood, or pick up a ‘hotspot’ map and concentrate on a particular area that needs some help.
Monday – Friday, October 5-9: Pick up a litter bag, an assignment map, and a Clean Sweep tote bag from outside the Utility Building, 112 Anderson RD (available 9:00 to 5:00, Monday-Friday). Pick up litter wherever you find it, along streets and alleys (but ONLY in the public right-of-way), and return your litter bag to the Utility Building for disposal. (Keep the reusable tote bag as a thank you gift!)
Saturday, October 10, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM: FREE disposal of household garbage for Cheney Utility customers, at the Utility Building, 112 Anderson RD. (NO Appliances or Furniture accepted—Use the Large Item Pickup Service for these items!)
Saturday, October 10, 9:00 AM -12:00 PM: FREE Passenger Tire Disposal (unmounted) at Les Schwab ; truck & farm tires, and mounted tires, accepted for a small fee. Also accepting batteries!
Please Note: Not all our normal Clean Sweep opportunities will be available this year (household hazardous waste, shredding of personal documents, electronics recycling, etc. will return next year!
