“Keep Leesburg Beautiful” Annual Community Clean Up Campaign Begins April 1
|Leesburg, VA (March 29, 2022) – The Town of Leesburg’s 18th annual “Keep Leesburg Beautiful” community clean-up and beautification campaign will begin on April 1 and will run the entire month of April. An official cleanup event will take place on Saturday, April 2, at Raflo Park, beginning at 10 a.m.
Keep Leesburg Beautiful is an opportunity for the public to get involved in cleaning up the Town. Residents, neighborhood and community groups, and businesses are encouraged to participate by forming teams to collect litter along roadsides, stream beds, and other public common areas. Groups and individuals interested in participating should visit the Town of Leesburg website at www.leesburgva.gov/KLB for details about how to volunteer and suggestions for litter collection locations. The Town of Leesburg will provide safety vests, gloves and trash bags and will collect the filled bags and larger items like tires and appliances.
Another way in which residents can get involved is by doing storm sewer inlet inventories. Doing an inventory is as easy as taking a walk around your neighborhood. The Public Works and Capital Projects Department will provide maps and inventory forms. Volunteers note on the inventory forms any inlets that are blocked or need repair and return the forms to the town. Street Division crews are dispatched to fix the problems identified.
For more information about the storm drain inventory program, including how to sign up, visit the Town website at www.leesburgva.gov/KLB.
