Phoenixville Town Watch Set for Saturday Spring Clean-Up

Join the Phoenixville Town Watch to help beautify the borough.

Clear skies and warm air mark spring’s arrival in Phoenixville; so too will the perennial act of sprucing up the town. In mythology, April is the month of Aphrodite, the goddess of beauty, and in keeping with that theme, the Phoenixville Town Watch will be cleaning up, with the public’s help, starting this morning at 9 a.m.

Phoenixville Town Watch is excited to announce our second Spring Community Cleanup Day on Saturday April 28th and is encouraging area residents to get involved. Picking up trash, sweeping sidewalks, and raking debris from the curbside areas may require some sweat equity, but it’s well worth the effort. These projects will not only improve the landscape of Phoenixville, they will create a great foundation for working together moving forward.

Many local organizations will also be joining together for this worthy event, including the Phoenixville Business Association (PABA), the Phoenixville Green Team, the Phoenixville Girl Scouts, and the Borough of Phoenixville.

The starting point will be  the Kiawanis’ Children's Plaza (217 Bridge Street) at 9:00 a.m. The focus of this day’s efforts will be on cleaning up the downtown business district. Volunteers will recycle and reclaim as much of the refuse as possible, with assistance from the Phoenixville Borough. Rain date is May 5th.

Spring Community Clean-Up Days dates back to 2006 when one ton of garbage was collected! It’s a great annual tradition, one that Phoenixville Town Watch is eager to continue for many years to come.

If you can help, please bring work gloves, and if possible, rakes and shovels. Bags and water bottles will be provided. Sunscreen and hats are suggested.

Great cause, and I hope they had a good turnout; but to little notice. Perhaps I missed it; but this is the first I heard of this cleanup

Over a month is not enough notice?
