KYLE — The Kyle Police Department is hosting the Citywide Cleanup event on Saturday, May 21, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Gregg-Clarke Park.
To participate in the event, residents must sign up through the website. The event is limited to the first 500 registered residents that fill out the sign-up form available in English and Spanish at CityofKyle.com/Cleanup. Signup will close Thursday, May 19 at 5 p.m. or when all spots are filled.
“Our aim with this event is to provide the community with an opportunity to dispose of any trash and unwanted items at no cost to them,” Kyle Code Enforcement Officer Duarte Pamplona said. “This event also helps us get the word out about all the available resources we have for our residents to help keep their properties in compliance — including two bulk pickups per year and one free monthly drop-off at the landfill. The cleanup is just one way we strive to build the relationship between Code Enforcement and the Community so that we can all work together to keep the City of Kyle a safe and beautiful place to live, which is the ultimate goal of Code Enforcement.”
This event is for Kyle city residential waste only. No commercial waste will be accepted and no U-Hauls, box trucks, or trailers will be allowed.

Attendees are asked to stack their loads with mattresses on the bottom, metal in the middle and bagged trash on top. Please secure loads with tarps and ratchet straps, as needed. Participants will be required to unload their own items.
