Terre Haute, through involvement of all citizens, business leaders, churches, community organization and schools, will have a town free of litter and an established recycling program.
Our mission is to work with city government, business leaders, community organizations, churches, residents, property owners and schools to solve the problem of trash on the streets and in the alleys of Terre Haute.
1. Minimum of two city wide cleanups a year.
2. Educate residents, property owners, businesses, community organizations, churches and school children on what is necessary to have a clean town that we can be proud of.
3. Work with the city and our garbage contractor to ensure the cleanest, most efficient and cost effective way to eliminate the current problem of trash in the town.
4. Work with and educate the city government, residents, business, community organizations, churches and school children in developing a viable recycle program to help eliminate the problem of “trash pickers” and limiting what goes to the landfills.
5. Work with the Terre Haute Neighborhood Program to educate the neighborhoods on the importance of working together to keep their neighborhoods free of trash; i.e. every neighborhood adopts its own cleanups on a monthly basis.
6. Work with Trees, Inc. and THNP to beautify the town. Suggestion here is to identify “eyesore” properties, enforce codes about cleaning up the properties and working with city officials to develop codes that can be enforced if the current ones are not enforceable.
7. Hold elected officials accountable for making Terre Haute beautiful and keeping it that way.
