City Announces Great Indy Spring Cleanup ToxDrop Event

The City of Indianapolis will offer a special Great Indy Spring Cleanup ToxDrop Event from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, May 3, 2010. The Great Indy Spring Cleanup is a citywide effort to beautify and strengthen our communities that aims to achieve litter abatement through neighborhood-driven initiatives.

“I am committed to growing a sustainable and livable city,” said Mayor Greg Ballard. “Every family can make a difference by not only picking up and pitching litter, but making the effort to dispose of waste properly. Let’s come together and take pride in improving our city to make it a brighter and safer place to live, work and play.”

The ToxDrop Program provides an opportunity for residents to properly dispose of all their unwanted and unused household hazardous waste. For a detailed list on acceptable household hazardous waste items, please visit

“I encourage everyone to participate in this special ToxDrop event,” said City-County Councilor Christine Scales, who collaborated with the City of Indianapolis to organize the May 3 ToxDrop. “Properly disposing of household hazardous waste improves our environment and creates a stronger, safer community.”
