Mayor Greg Ballard today announced the Great Indy Spring
Cleanup, a citywide effort to beautify and strengthen our communities.
The Great Indy Spring Cleanup aims to achieve litter abatement through
neighborhood-driven initiatives.

"Every resident, every family can make a difference," said Mayor Greg
Ballard. "Let's all come together, take pride, and clean up streets,
alleys and public places to make our city a brighter and safer place to
live, work and play."

The Mayor's Office of Neighborhood Services and Keep Indianapolis
Beautiful Inc., with support from the Department of Public Works and
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Development, are coordinating with
neighborhood associations and groups across the City to organize cleanup
efforts during the month of April and continuing through October. For
information on organizing a cleanup in your neighborhood, visit

Now through April 16, visit your neighborhood Marion County Public
Library, YMCA, or National City Bank branch to pick up a pair of gloves
and a trash bag to clean up the litter in your neighborhood and
participate in Keep Indianapolis Beautiful Inc.'s "Every Litter Bit
Helps" program. Simply dispose of the bag with your weekly trash pickup.

litter and debris that has accumulated in public spaces. Participate in
the Great Indy Spring Cleanup!
