MARBLE FALLS — With warmer temperatures comes spring cleaning — at least, that’s what officials with the city and Allied Waste hope.

Both groups are joining forces for this year’s Spring Clean-up, which begins with a volunteer trash pickup Saturday at 9 a.m. at Westside Park, 1206 Second St.

The trash pickup is the first event in a month-long spring cleaning campaign, City Manager Ralph Hendricks said.

“In the past, both the city and Allied Waste have had their own trash pickups and other events,” Hendricks said. “We decided this year to combine our efforts to make it a cohesive event for our residents.”

Hendricks said organizers plan to hold cleanup events each week in March, including curbside bulk-item pickups March 8-12 and bulk-item dropoffs at 2000 Colt Circle March 20-28.

“We’re hoping to make it easier for our residents to get their cleaning done,” he said.
