City of Leesville announces Annual Cleanup Week, Fall Trash Bash
LEESVILLE, La.-- The Mayor's Women's Commission (MWC), in conjunction with The Keep Leesville Beautiful Committee, will host Leesville's annual Cleanup Week beginning Monday, September 28, 2015 through Friday, October 3, 2015.  

Residents are encouraged to clean their properties, and the City will offer a lending hand.  Leesville Public Works crews will dispose of items including tree limbs and boards throughout the week. Residents interested in this service should call the Public Works Department at 337-239-2995. The item pick up schedule will be as follows:

Sept. 28: Tree Limbs
Sept. 29: Boards
Sept. 30: Old Furniture/Appliances
Oct. 1: Old Furniture/Appliances
Oct. 2: Paint Products  

Residents can also discard items in roll-a-ways provided by Progressive Waste Management at American Moving and Storage, Inc. (1203 University Parkway) from 7 a.m. to noon Sept. 28-Oct. 3.

Cleanup Week will conclude with the annual Fall Trash Bash on Saturday, Oct. 3 at Leesville City Hall at 101 West Lee Street. Groups from all local civic organizations, churches, schools and clubs are invited to participate in the event and a little friendly competition. Each group will pick up trash in a specific area of the City and weigh gathered trash at American Moving and Storage, Inc.  At 11 a.m., volunteers will return to Liberty Garden Park for a cookout and an awards ceremony hosted by the MWC.

The Mayor's Women's Commission said they are looking forward to a successful Trash Bash. The phrase coined by Mrs. McKee, the Former MWC President is "Every lending hand is a helping hand to a great cause for our City."
