May 22 is the District 4 Motor City Make Over Day

The City of Detroit has designated May 22nd as the Day District 4 block clubs and community organizations will be participating in the annual Motor City Make Over. One advantage of registering an organization ahead of a clean-up is that the City of Detroit will supply gloves and heavy duty trash or yard waste bags. Another advantage is that the City will schedule a timely pickup of the trash and other waste.

To register an organization, and learn more about the Motor City Make Over, please refer to the links on this page of the Detroit City Government website:
