City volunteers came together in an effort to keep Lubbock beautiful Saturday.
Keep Lubbock Beautiful, city organizations, and residents spent Saturday morning dropping off unwanted items at collection bins located at LISD campuses. Among the list of items to be thrown away: tires, refrigerators, and even water heaters.
The clean up gives people the opportunity to conveniently and safely dispose of waste.
"It's basically just an opportunity to where they don't have to drive out to the landfill and get rid of things. It keeps it out of the alley way and out of the yards and illegal dump sites," says Karen Murfee, coordinator Keep Lubbock Beautiful.
Items collected will be taken to the city landfill or will be recycled. The next city wide cleanup is scheduled for April 10th.
