During the Great American Clean Up, the City of Tampa is holding its Third Annual Clean City Day. The event will be on Saturday, March 28, 2009 at Al Lopez Park, located at 4810 North Himes Avenue. Registration that morning will be from 8 to 8:30 a.m. TV and Radio personality Jack Harris will kick-off the day at 8:45 a.m. The clean-up initiative is from 9 a.m. to noon. Following the clean up, a celebration with food and live entertainment will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at Al Lopez Park.

Volunteers are needed for all areas of the city to help make this event a success. There will be remote registration areas throughout the city and volunteers will be assigned to support one of the five districts (New Tampa, North Tampa, East Tampa, West Tampa and South Tampa). All volunteers will receive a Clean City Day t-shirt.

The City of Tampa Clean City Division, along with Friends of Clean City, is proud to initiate this effort during the Great American Clean Up, the nation’s largest community improvement program, held between March and May each year. This event is designed to support beautification projects, clean up efforts, adopt-a-street and trash receptacle programs and recycling awareness.
