Neighborhood group does some spring cleaning

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The West End Neighborhood Association hosted its fifth-annual Spring Cleanup Saturday morning.

Neighborhood residents could drop off clothes, furniture, appliances, tires and paint cans.

City workers then disposed of them.

"We want to build pride for the area," West End Neighborhood Association president Mary Ellen Warner said. "We love living here and we think by setting an example of cleaning up, people would follow suit and try to keep their yards clean. There's people who don't have the means to get rid of their unwanted trash and appliances. It just makes the neighborhood really beautiful."

The association usually collects ten to 20 tons of waste.
