The City of George West and Unify to Beautify will sponsor a Pride/Cleanup Day on Saturday for George West residential garbage customers only.

Residents must present a city utility billing stub before participating, to verify garbage service.

Officials urge all citizens to roll up their sleeves and take advantage of this cleanup day.

Designated trash receptacles will be located at the City Yard on 110 Business 59 between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. No tires will be accepted on this cleanup day. Should any of the receptacles fill, that portion of the cleanup will close.
