Take Back Sparkle City Clean-up Campaign was a Huge Success
DCOS is proud to say that the launch of the “Take Back Sparkle City” Clean-up Campaign was an extraordinary success!
Although over 106,000 pounds of trash, furniture, appliance, and brush were picked up and disposed of by volunteers, the real triumph of the day was seeing the businesses and community volunteers coming together to make Snyder a cleaner, healthier, more beautiful place to live. There were over 200 volunteers from businesses, organizations, and residents who joined together to make a change all throughout our community. While most volunteers were focusing on trash clean up, the Downtown Organization H.O.S.T (Heart of Snyder Texas) pulled weeds and planted flowers around the square.
The “Take Back Sparkle City” Campaign has inspired unity within our community. The City of Snyder, Scurry County, DCOS, and Chamber of Commerce, along with the businesses and residents are all working together to make a difference, and for the betterment of Snyder.
While Phase 1 relied on volunteers, Phase 2 will consist of a more “on your own” approach. Residents & Businesses are asked to gather their own trash loads or help their neighbors and dispose of the loads themselves for FREE at either the roll-offs around town or the landfill on May 13th. Residents & Businesses can also take a categorized “light” loads at any time for FREE throughout the month of May when they present their water bill at the gate. Roll offs will also be placed around town on May 13th for businesses and residents to use to help clean up Snyder.
Save the date for Phase 3, Saturday June 10th when we will have one more city-wide clean up complete with volunteers to help before enforcements go into effect on July 1st. You can volunteer at snyderchamber.org/tbsparklecity or call in trash pick-ups to City Hall at 325-573-4960.
Don’t miss these chances to clean up on May 13th & June 10th! Let’s “Take Back Sparkle City” together and do our part to make Snyder sparkle once again!
Our hands. Our feet. Making a difference in our community.
