The City of Magee will again be partnering with the Mississippi Department of Transportation and Keep Mississippi Beautiful in the
annual Great American Clean up during the week of April 23 through April 28. Residents are encouraged to survey around their
homes to determine if old building materials, furniture, old tires or old appliances can be discarded. Overgrown hedge bushes, weeds, limbs, leaves and other overgrown vegetation will be picked up by city crews Monday through
Wednesday of the Clean Up Week and the debris items will be collected on Thursday and Friday. All items that are picked up by city personnel must be placed by the street on city right of way. Church groups, clubs, school organizations and individuals are invited to join the fight against litter by participating in litter collection efforts in your neighborhood, around parks, schools or your local church.Garbage bags will be furnished by the City of Magee for individuals or groups picking up litter. Please contact Jimmy Clyde at 601-849-3344 for further information about the garbage bags. Businesses are also encouraged to do something around their property to enhance the 2012 Clean Up Campaign. The Great American Clean Up is one of many programs that encourages people to care about their communities through volunteer participation and by working together to insure that we have a clean, safe and healthy community.
