Hope holding community wide cleanup on Friday

The community of Hope is sprucing up the town on Friday, ahead of some of the town’s biggest annual events.

The Community Cleanup Day will be from from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.. There will be large dumpsters and a recycling trailer available at the Hope Utilities Garage on Mill Street.

Organizers say you can drop off trash, cardboard, glass and plastic. They will not be taking tires, TVs, refrigerators, window air conditioners, computers or computer monitors.

Anyone who needs help getting items to the collection point can call the Community Center at 812-546-4499 to arrange pickup.

The town will also be picking up brush and limbs curbside.

The northeastern Bartholomew County community will be hosting the Hope Ride on Sept. 21st and Hope Heritage Days the weekend of Sept. 27th.
