There are two spring cleaning events in Sevier County to help get ready for the upcoming tourist season. If you’re in town we would love your participation!
Keep Sevierville Beautiful is hosting the semi-annual Roads and Rivers day this Saturday, March 26, from 9 am to noon. Volunteers are asked to participate by signing up at any of the registration sites to receive their assignments. Registrations sites are as follows: Sevierville Primary School, Welcome Center on the Spur, Dixie Stampede in Pigeon Forge, East Tennessee Realty Group in Wears Valley, Wilderness at the Smokies Resort in Sevierville, Sevier County Food Ministries on Old Knoxville Highway in Sevierville, First Baptist Church in Seymour and the Smokies Park clubhouse in Kodak. All volunteers must come to these sites first to receive maps, trash bags and equipment. Each participant is encouraged to bring gloves, wear sturdy shoes and long pants. They will also receive a free ticket for the Tennessee Smokies’ “Keep Sevier Beautiful” night scheduled during the baseball season.

Today kicks off the City of Gatlinburg’s annual Sparkle Days where city residents and business owners get a chance to easily dispose of those items not usually included in garbage collection. The Sanitation Department will pick up, free of charge, scrap metal, old appliances, brush and even junked vehicles. Sparkle Days is scheduled for March 21 through April1 where the first week is reserved for commercial (21-25) and the second week will be residential collection (28-April 1). Interested in scheduling a pickup time or a list of exclusions please call 430-1370. The Gatlinburg Recreation Department is also encouraging neighborhood residents to form litter pickup groups where they will be provided with large garbage bags and the staff will retrieve from the roadsides. Interested in a litter group please call 436-4990.
