Project Clean Up Hits Amarillo Blvd

As you well know, Amarillo’s alleys tend to be neglected. Not just from a lawn care standpoint, but these driveways tend to become storage areas for everything people no longer want.

Yes, things like old furniture, lawnmowers that no longer work, and even large appliances like refrigerators will be dumped in random alleys around town. The problem with this is that they will sit there, sometimes for years.

Ignore the fact that if you have large items, you can simply call the city to schedule a time for them to come pick them up. It’s a great service that’s available to everyone, and they do it for free.

Alleys are full of these large objects, not to mention the trash that spills out when people throw it in the trash. That’s why Amarillo needs to have these Project Clean Up days, where they attack parts of the city to make it look and feel cleaner.

Another one of those Project Clean Up events took place yesterday in an area of ​​dire need. Some teenagers who were part of the previous cleanup project headed to Amarillo Blvd. between Garfield and Mirror St., put their heads down and got to work.

They found a lot of junk to clean up, especially along Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland streets. Now, is this how we want to honor our former presidents? With the trash alleys named after them? I don’t think so.

This project is an important one for Amarillo because we want to keep the city clean and beautiful, so if you have an area that you think really needs some cleaning up and would be good for this project, you can nominate a neighborhood by clicking here .

These might be the most dangerous intersections in Amarillo

Traffic stinks.

These intersections lead harder.

Feel free to chime in if I missed any. We’re happy to add more Amarillo collision hot spots to this list of shame.
