The Myrtle Grove Southwest Neighborhood Cleanup saw great participation from residents, with about 32,000 pounds of yard waste, 19,760 pounds of bulk waste, 3,140 pounds of tires and 2,080 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 (2,875,280 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.
