Danbury is getting ready for the annual Clean City Danbury Day being held May 6th.
The City is looking for volunteers to pick up litter in a neighborhood, park or waterway. Last year, nearly 1,000 volunteers picked up litter throughout the city. The city provides trash bags, safety vests, and gloves.
Volunteers are also needed at each of the five dumpster location. Those volunteers are tasked with assisting residents in the drop-off process. The dumpster locations are at City Hall, Rogers Park, the P.A.L. Building, Public Works Building and WCSU Westside Campus.
Danbury's free Spring Leaf Pick-Up Program started this week and will run through the end of next month.
Only leaves bagged in Paper Leaf Bags with No Tape will be collected from the curbside in front of homes. Branches will be picked up separately. Tree limbs must be no longer than 4 feet and no larger than 4 inches in diameter. Branches must be bundled with twine, no heavier than 35lbs.
The collections will be done every other week in neighborhood by zip code. Collections this week are in the 06810 zipcode. Collections next week move to 06811 neighborhoods. This cycle will be repeated through May 26th.
