ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WKRG) — The Lincoln Park neighborhood of Escambia County, Florida is looking a lot cleaner. Crews collected 59 tons (118,000 pounds) of debris during the District Three Lincoln Park Neighborhood Cleanup in June, as part of the county’s ongoing effort to help keep local neighborhoods and communities clean and safe. The event allowed residents to leave items at the curb to be disposed of free of charge by the county and partnering agencies.

Here is more information provided in a press release:

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.
