Organizers note that they will also be collecting discarded tires. However, only tires and trash from the designated cleanup area will be accepted.

“It is important for us to work with the community we serve, improving one neighborhood at a time,” Property Maintenance Official Susan Dillard with Suffolk Community Development said. “We are excited to come together with the residents and look forward to getting tires and litter off of our street.”

Anyone with questions should contact the Planning & Community Development office at 757-514-4150 or Litter Control at 757-514-7604, or email
