The District 3 Wedgewood Neighborhood Cleanup on June 5 saw great participation from residents, with about 17 tons of yard waste, 3 tons of bulk waste, 3 tons tires and 520 pounds of household hazardous waste placed at curbside for pickup.
The neighborhood cleanup initiative involves an aggressive clean-up effort, targeting different neighborhoods throughout the county, with crew members picking up a variety of debris and waste, including electronics, furniture and household items. Since 2016, more than 2,310 tons (4,620,000 pounds) of debris were collected and disposed of through the Community Redevelopment Agency's Safe Neighborhood Program.
The county's neighborhood cleanup program is hosted by the Escambia County Community Redevelopment Agency's Safe Neighborhood Program. Local partners include Escambia County Waste Services, Environmental Code Enforcement, Public Works, Animal Services and Road Prison, along with the City of Pensacola Sanitation Department.
