This year, the Kerns/Buckman neighborhood cleanup takes place on Saturday, April 18th, from 9AM to 1PM. As always, it will be in the parking lot of the Jones Kendall Building at 2625 E. Burnside Street.
If you’re not familiar with the cleanup, it’s an annual tradition and a great way to get rid of that bulky waste taking up space in your basement or attic. All manner of household goods are accepted, including electronics and computer equipment. The only things we can’t take are hazardous materials such as paint cans, batteries, etc.
Volunteers are always welcome to come down and help out at the event, doing anything from greeting people as they arrive to helping unload waste into bins. I know, FUN, right?!?
If you’d like to volunteer, you can contact Eric O’Connor, who is the Buckman neighborhood’s representative on the cleanup committee. Drop him a line at eric(at)magnetichealthfactory(dot)com. Or, you can just show up at the Jones Kendall Building parking lot at 8:30AM on Saturday, April 18th. Wear reasonably sturdy shoes (i.e., no flip-flops), and bring work gloves if you have them. Eye protection wouldn’t be a bad idea, either.
