Our second Preserve Paris event will be a Clean Sweep Day in a portion of the Atkins Porter Historic Neighborhood! The area targeted for the Clean Sweep will be the Aden/Thompson/Blakemore (some Blythe) Street area.This event will begin on Saturday, August 27 at 8:00 a.m., in the parking lot on the southside of the HCMC Home Health/Hospice facility at 311 East Wood Street. Community volunteers and neighbors will converge on this neighborhood to assist residents with trash removal and, if feasible, some yard work. Dumpster buggies will be placed throughout the neighborhood for use this day as well as throughout the weekend.

Saturday and Sunday, August 27 – 28, will be Reuse Days 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. On Monday, August 29, City of Paris Public Works employees will be coming through the neighborhood to collect the buggies and remove anything left on the curbs.


If you are interested in volunteering or have questions please contact City Hall at 731-641-1402 or email: mstancook@cityofparistn.gov, we would love to add you to our participant list!


Event Update……

With over 60 volunteers, the second Preserve Paris event was another huge success.  Crews were out in the neighborhood just after 8:00 am and worked tirelessly until about 10:30 am when they all met together in the parking lot of the HCMC Home Health and Hospice parking lot located on East Wood Street.  Reuse began immediately following the clean up and the City of Paris Public Works Department had every thing cleaned up first thing Monday morning.

The City of Paris would like to say THANK YOU to another amazing group of volunteers for their work in our Atkins Porter Clean Sweep Day. We just can’t say enough about this great community and the pride in our neighborhoods. We had organized groups, individuals, neighbors, families, city employees, youngsters, people of all ages, thank you, thank you, thank you!

Also thanks to Henry County Medical Center for the use of their parking lot to stage the workers and serve lunch.

Thanks again to our lunch sponsors:  Lakeway IGA, Walmart, Kroger, E. W. James and Sons, Lewis Bakeries and  Dollar Tree…….to the Henry County Litter Program and the City of Paris MS4 Program for their support with this project.
