Some Interesting Facts About Clean City Danbury Day.

With tomorrow's Clean City Danbury Day rapidly approaching, I thought I would share some interesting facts about the day.
Winters Brothers (the new owners of AWD) will be donating the complete cost of the disposal, the dumpsters and the manpower for the day. Special thanks to Joe Winters and his team for the donation-- this is a huge expense and last year the City of Danbury had to foot the bill for the disposal.
For the first time, the FCI is providing manpower for the event at several key locations. Special thanks to Warden Maureen Baird and her team- look for more strategic partnerships between the City and the FCI in the future.
Here are some other key facts:
  • Nearly 500 volunteers & over 60 teams are particpating.
  • Over 60 streets will be cleaned by clean teams.
  • Community groups as diverse as the Ecuadorian Civic Center (they are cleaning 3 streets) to the DHS Air Force Junior ROTC will volunteering.
  • We anticipate collecting over 150 tons of bulky waste and debris.
  • We will collect over 200 refrigerators and stoves and other white goods.
  • Our Public Works Department will have all parking lots cleaned and cleared by 2 pm.
