The First 2017 Preserve Paris Clean Sweep Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 8, 2017 in the Wynn Street Neighborhood.

Preserve Paris is a neighborhood revitalization, preservation and clean-up project that began in early 2016.  Last year with the help of amazing people, the Preserve Paris volunteers held two Clean Sweep Days in both the Historic Lee School Neighborhood and the Historic Atkins Porter Neighborhood.  As you know, Clean Sweep Day is where community volunteers and neighbors will converge on a neighborhood to assist residents with trash removal and, if feasible, some yard work.

The first Preserve Paris event for 2017 will be a Clean Sweep Day in the Wynn Street Neighborhood!  This event will begin on Saturday, April 8 at 8:00 a.m. in the Trinity Funeral Home parking lot.  Dumpster buggies will be placed throughout the neighborhood for use this day as well as throughout the weekend.  Saturday, April 8,  beginning at 12:00 p.m. will be a Reuse Day where any unwanted items can be placed at the curb and can be taken by anyone that wants them.  ONLY ITEMS ON THE CURB MAY BE TAKEN, anyone picking up reuse items must not pick up anything past the curb.  On Monday, April 10, City of Paris Public Works employees will be coming through the neighborhood to collect the buggies and remove anything left on the curbs.

Volunteers are invited to assist in the Clean Sweep Day.  If you plan to participate please wear appropriate shoes and gloves for outdoor work. If you have questions please call City Hall at 641-1402 or email:

In the event of inclimate weather the event will be re-scheduled to Saturday, April 15.
