ORLEANS – The Orleans Town Council has set October 3-8 as “Fall Town-Wide Clean Sweep Week,” and is encouraging all local residents to participate in the clean-up efforts for the fall and winter months ahead.
Town crews will be picking up large items of discard free of charge that week. Discard items should be placed curbside for easy pickup. In addition, a large dumpster will also be set up at the Orleans Town Garage for resident use that week as well.
Residents are welcome and encouraged to bring any unwanted or junk-type items they want to dispose of and place them in the dumpster.
The Orleans Chamber of Commerce is also participating in this special community event and asking everyone’s help to make Orleans beautiful this fall by taking the time to clean up, spruce up, fix up, and paint up all around town that week.
Chamber officials are asking business owners and residents alike to help dress up the town to usher in Autumn by decorating their storefronts, porches, and lawns with mums, scarecrows, pumpkins, etc. in preparation for the Annual Fall Fun Fest in the Park downtown on October 8th.
