Annual Clean-up Day

Cove’s annual Clean-up Day is an annual tradition providing a good venue for residents to remove metal, wood, old tires, and other unused and worn-out goods in a way that maximizes re-use when possible, and minimizes impacts on landfills.

Clean-up Day is sponsored by the City of Cove, with generous resource contributions from many local businesses and individuals. Foremost, the hard working volunteers who turn out year after year make our Clean-Up Day such a winner!

Cove Clean-up Day is Saturday, October 17, 2015
