Flint launches city-wide cleanup project today

Flint Mayor Dyane Walling is expected to announce today a city-wide cleanup initiative.

Mayor Walling will declare May "Love Your City" month at 4 this afternoon.

The announcement is scheduled to be made at the Kearsley Park/Mott Volunteer Service Center, 1909 Kearsley Park Blvd.

The idea behind this month is to clean up Flint by Memorial Day weekend.

All residents and businesses are invited to help with the effort.

Republic Services, the company that provides trash pickup for Flint, will have special pickup dates to coincide with the effort.
