Edison neighborhood and surrounding areas host cleanup on April 27

Single-family and duplex homeowners and renters in the Edison neighborhood and surrounding areas – from 48th to 66th streets between Tyler Street and Tacoma Mall Boulevard – are preparing to dispose of unsightly debris from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 27 at Edison Elementary School (5830 S. Pine St.) with the assistance of staff from the City of Tacoma and community volunteers.

All that is required to discard debris and other unwanted items is proof of neighborhood residence, such as a driver’s license or current utility bill. Items that cannot be discarded as part of this effort include: material from a business; cars, motorcycles, campers or boat parts; truck canopies, trailers, boats or recreational vehicles; daily household garbage; hazardous waste; riding mowers; and animal carcasses.

Those interested in supporting this or other upcoming neighborhood cleanups as a volunteer can contact Allyson Griffith with the Neighborhood and Community Services Department’s Community Based Services Division at or (253) 591-5119.
