Volunteers should report to Prosserville Park, located at West Sixth and O streets, where they’ll receive instructions and equipment. (Plenty of curbside parking is available along West Sixth Street). The targeted area is within walking distance. Barring inclement weather, future Neighborhood Cleanup events will be scheduled for the first Saturday of the month and will target business and commercial areas as well as residential.
Those with suggestions for future cleanup areas are encouraged to inform the volunteer directing the cleanup, or call 925-779-6878. If there is no answer, please leave a message regarding your suggested cleanup area.
The Neighborhood Cleanup Program is a collaborative effort of United Citizens for Better Neighborhoods, community volunteers, the Antioch Police Department Crime Prevention Commission, Neighborhood Watch Program, the City of Antioch Community Development Department, Neighborhood Improvement Services, and the Public Works Department.
In the words of an Antioch Police Department press release, “Neighborhoods that are free of trash and refuse are inviting, and a clean community instills a sense of community pride. Cleaning up your neighborhood can make life better for your family, your neighbors and your community.”
