Neighborhood Clean-up day, April 18

Start planning for spring house cleaning! BPNA has been awarded a Neighborhood Clean-up grant for April 18, 2009, according to Vicki Provine, Program Manager, Housing and Neighborhood Development for the city. HAND will provide dumpsters and logistical support at the parking lot at the Free Methodist church at the corner of Grimes and Lincoln, from 9am to 1pm on Saturday, April 18.

BPNA volunteers pitch in on site to help neighbors toss their cast-off items into the dumpsters. Usable but orphaned items are set aside for recycling and free to all comers. We can use another few volunteers with a truck or van who could help neighbors with large items and haul brush to the site. For more information,call the volunteer coordinator, Anne Hedin, at 323-7485.

The City is unable to accept electronic waste such as computers and monitors at the Neighborhood Clean-up site on April 18, but do not despair. You can recycle office equipment, old TVs, VCRs, cameras, etc. at a free e-waste recycling drive hosted by Indiana University Bloomington and IUPUI. The program will be open to the general public on Saturday, May 2, from 9 am to 2 pm in the parking lot to the north of Memorial Stadium. Complete information, including maps, hours, and a list of accepted items, is available at
