Pick It Up Powder Springs, Neighborhood Edition

Date: Oct. 16
Time: 9 a.m. to noon
Location: Your neighborhood

It’s Fall y’all and that means Pick It Up Powder Springs, Neighborhood Edition! To get our neighborhoods more involved, and reach more areas in the city, we’re doing things a little differently. We will not be meeting up at the park but instead each neighborhood will designate their own meet-up place. To register your neighborhood/area just have your point of contact reach out to Parks Director Joe Wilson, It’s that simple! Need trash bags and grabbers? We’ll get them to you! All you need do is show up and do your part in litter reduction. Be sure to snap a few pics and tag us #PickItUpPS! Trash bags can be left at a designated location and we’ll pick them up. Let’s continue to support our neighborhoods and our city. Pick It Up Powder Springs!
