Free clean-up event in May

The City of Springfield contracts with Community Partnership of the Ozarks to coordinate free cleanups in registered neighborhoods. Neighborhood residents can dispose of yard waste, old furniture, construction debris and much more free of charge.

Phelps Grove Neighborhood and University Heights Neighborhood are hosting a joint neighborhood clean-up event in the Springfield Art Museum parking lot from 7:00 am to 11:00 am on May 15.

UHNA volunteers will also gather at McGee-McGregor Wading Pool at 10:00 am to participate in the Adopt-A-Street program along Brookside.

If you would like to volunteer for either event please reach out to Eric Pauly (Phelps Grove, 417-736-9357 or or Jan Peterson (University Heights, 417-838-6216 or
