Keep Pasco Beautiful once again encouraged volunteers to scour 43 locations in Pasco County for debris pickup, during its annual 2022 Great American Cleanup.
More than 750 volunteers logged 2,244 hours to help to clear public spaces, roadsides and waterways in Dade City, Holiday, Hudson, New Port Richey, Port Richey and Wesley Chapel.
The effort yielded 45,300 pounds of collected trash throughout Pasco County.
The City of Zephyrhills also hosted its seasonal “Neighborhood Clean-Up,” targeting Gall Boulevard to 12th Street and 12th Avenue to Fifth Avenue.
Fifteen Zephyrhills Public Works employees were on hand to assist with check-ins and roving cleanup in alleyways, and to facilitate the drop-off site at Zephyrhills City Hall, according to a news release.
Numerous items were disposed of, including tires, electronics, appliances, yard debris, mattresses and more.
Collection totals in Zephyrhills were: 150 cubic yards of mixed-debris; four appliances; seven TVs/electronics; 35 tires; and 17 drive-up drop-offs.
The idea of the city’s clean-up program is to help alleviate various Code Enforcement issues in certain areas, and the municipality at-large.
