Over the last four years, the City of Antioch’s Code Enforcement Division has held annual “neighborhood cleanup” events at various city facilities in Antioch. These events are a partnership between the City of Antioch and Republic Services to assist Antioch residents with free, lawful disposal of unwanted household items.
These events are anticipated to reduce illegal dumping occurrences since unwanted items are disposed of properly, and the number of reports to the Code Enforcement Division for junk/rubbish accumulation on private property is reduced. These events have become very popular, and the number of residents participating has grown significantly over the years. This year is the first year all neighborhoods in Antioch have received an invitation to participate in an event!
So far this year, Code Enforcement and Republic Services have hosted 13 cleanup events in various neighborhoods resulting in over 240 tons of unwanted debris being collected and disposed of lawfully! It is anticipated that this year, nearly 300 tons of trash will be removed from residential properties due to the expansion of these events to include all neighborhoods citywide.
Please check your mailbox for your invitation flyer from Republic Services to your event! Events are held March through October, and you will need to bring your invitation flyer to access the event and dispose of your unwanted household items at no charge! Thank you for keeping Antioch beautiful!
