Paint - Up Campaign
Gets Underway Today
If thorc is any trash lt'i't in Waynesville or Hazel
wood after May 22, it won't be the fault of the clean-up
I crews of the two towns. They were Riven instructions
yesterday to visit every residence and place of busi
' ness and haul away all trash that was gathered up
i and put where they could Ret it.
j The clean-up campaign, which starts today, gives
j promise of bringing out of basements, attics, and from
vacant lots, scores of loads of unsightly trash.
G. C Ferguson, town manager for Waynesville,
said yesterday there was an urgent need for cleaning
! up this year, and that both town trash trucks would
' be on the job during the drive. All persons having
trash to haul can get immediate attention by calling
j 153. Otherwise the trucks will get the trash on their
regular schedule rounds.
i Mr. Ferguson called attention to the importance
of business places keeping all trash covered to prevent
wind from blowing it away.
Mayor Clyde Fisher, of Hazelwood, said that con
ditions in Hazelwood were better than usual, but there
was a need for a determined drive to clean up even
Hazelwood trucks will make more rounds than
usual, and cooperate in every way to help citizens get
rid of their rubbish, Mayor Fisher said.
Both town officials were of the opinion that per
sons living near vacant lots would in most instances
have to clear these lots of paper and rubbish. So many
owners of lots are away, and unless those living near
them take the task as a civic duty to clean them off
the majority of lots would not be cleaned, it was point
Stores reported good sales in soaps, cleaning sup
plies, and most paint dealers said the sales of paint
was most encouraging. A lot of painting has already
been done, with many prospects making plans to im
prove their property.
