Our first ever Preserve Paris event will be a clean-up week in the Lee Historic Neighborhood!  This event will begin on Saturday,  April 16 at 9:00 a.m. with a Clean Sweep Day  where community volunteers and neighbors will converge on the Lee Historic 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 following week.  Sunday through Thursday, April 17 – 21, 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, anyone picking up reuse items must not pick up anything past the curb.  On Friday, April 22, City of Paris Public Works employees will be coming through the neighborhood to collect the buggies and remove anything left on the curbs.

An update on the event……

the Clean Sweep Day was held on a bright sunny morning.  Everyone met in the Lee School parking lot with over 75 volunteers in attendance.  The event was quite successful, by 10:30 a.m. the volunteers were finished with the clean up and gathered for lunch thanks to the support of Lakeway IGA, Walmart, Kroger, E. W. James and Sons, Lewis Bakeries and the Henry County Litter Program.

The reuse part of the event was successful enough that immediately following the clean up autos were travelling throughout the neighborhood taking advantage of the “treasures” placed alongside the streets.  Public Works crews removed all of the debris, emptied the dumpster buggies and had the neighborhood looking fantastic by 10:00 a.m. Monday morning.

A huge thanks to all who participated!
