Neighborhood Cleanup Day in NPR collects tons of trash

Suncoast News staff report

NEW PORT RICHEY — Weather tried to rain on the parade of environmentally conscious residents, but city officials determined that the recent Neighborhood Cleanup Day must go on.

Defying the threat of raindrops, people disposed of debris at two locations, Frances Avenue Park, off Louisiana Avenue, and the former church property at 6131 S. River Road.

They filled about eight loads in large trash bins, Sherman Applegate reported as the city’s public works director.

Materials allowed included glass, carpet, metals, wood 8 feet or less, house furniture, lawn furniture, drywall, mattresses, box springs, fencing and plywood.

Call the New Port Richey Public Works Department at (727) 841-4535 for more information.
