The Myrtle Grove Southeast Neighborhood Cleanup saw great participation from residents, with about 36,200 pounds of yard waste, 36,200 pounds of bulk waste, 5,940 pounds of tires and 2,260 pounds of household hazardous waste placed at curbside for pickup.
The neighborhood cleanup initiative involves an aggressive clean-up effort, targeting different neighborhoods throughout the county, with crew members and volunteers picking up a variety of debris and waste, including electronics, furniture and household items. In the past two years, more than 1,400 tons (2,818,300 pounds) of debris were collected and disposed of through the Community Redevelopment Agency's Safe Neighborhood Program.
The county's neighborhood cleanup program is hosted by the Escambia County Community Redevelopment Agency's Safe Neighborhood Program. Local partners include Escambia County Waste Services, Environmental Code Enforcement, Public Works, Animal Services and Road Prison, along with the City of Pensacola Sanitation Department and Keep Pensacola Beautiful.
