HUNTERSVILLE – Volunteers – especially those with trucks – are invited to participate in a community clean-up event Saturday, May 11, in the Pottstown neighborhood in southern Huntersville.
The town-sponsored event will be held rain or shine starting at 9 a.m. with an organizational gathering in the parking lot of the Waymer Center, 14200 Holbrooks Road. The three-hour project, with some of the participation coordinated by the volunteer affiliation of churches and civic clubs known as Huntersville Cares, is designed to bring people and groups together to enhance the community.
As part of the clean-up effort, the town is providing residents with the opportunity to dispose of bulky items including tires, mattresses, appliances and debris. Hazardous materials or building and construction items cannot be accepted.
During the clean-up program, activities will be available for children at the Waymer Center. Volunteers interested in helping with the project are advised to bring protective gear like gloves and boots.
Neighborhood residents are encouraged to leave items for removal next to the curb on Friday evening or Saturday morning. Senior citizens or others who need help moving items or handling yard debris are asked to register at the Waymer Center between 8 and 9 a.m. Saturday to schedule a material collection time.
No items will be picked up after noon.
