The 2021 Make Ottumwa Shine Spring Clean-Up Event will be held the week of May 16th – May 22nd. A list of areas to be adopted are on the city’s website at www.ottumwa.us. Anyone interested in volunteering to spruce up their neighborhood or other areas of the city can reserve a location on the website or by calling the Recycling Center at 641-683-0685. Volunteers can stop by the Recycling Center to pick up purple trash bags and latex gloves. Just select your area, pick up purple bags and gloves and once you’ve finished your project, call the Building and Code Enforcement office at 641-683-0610 or the Recycling Center at 641-683-0685 and let us know where to collect your filled bags.
