• Brightside & Waste Management of Kentucky Premium Compost Sale; Saturday, March 25th and Saturday, April 29th – 9:00a until Noon  Compost Flyer Spring 17-page-001
    • It’s time to start prepping those flower beds and vegetable gardens for your spring plantings! Brightside can help! They will be holding their bi-Annual Brightside & Waste Management of Kentucky Premium Compost Sale Saturday, March 25th and Saturday, April 29th from 9am until Noon at the Waste Management facility located at 2673 Outer Loop! Pre-bagged compost is $2.50 per bag or you can purchase a 1 cubic meter scoop for $40.00! Adding quality organic compost to the soil is a wonderful option for many different reasons from changing the soil structure to improve drainage, improve the oxygen levels in and around the roots, and to create a better overall soil structure for plant growth leading to bigger, brighter, and more verdant growth!
  • Brightside & Passport Health Plan Community-Wide Cleanup; Saturday, April 15th cwcflyerspring17-page-001.jpg
    • Registration for the Brightside & Passport Health Plan Spring Community-Wide Cleanup is open! The cleanup will take place on Saturday, April 15th with the suggested cleanup times of 8:00am – 12:00pm. (If the date they have set doesn’t work for your group, that’s OK, they will support any cleanup that takes place in the weeks surrounding April 15th.)  All cleanup teams will receive bags and gloves at no cost, and the first 5,000 volunteers to register will also receive a free t-shirt. Brightside welcomes groups of all sizes, big and small and if you’re not sure where you would like to hold your cleanup they can help with that too, just give them a call at (502) 574-2613 or send them an email at brightsidemail@louisvilleky.gov  and they will be happy to make a suggestion.  Brightside is proud to be holding their Cleanup with the Mayor’s Give A Day Week of Service for the fourth year.  Cleanups are an integral part of Brightside’s mission and without the help of your volunteer group, and many other volunteers throughout the year, they could not achieve our goals of a cleaner, greener and more sustainable Louisville.
