The City of Crestview is gearing up for its fourth annual Keep Crestview Beautiful clean-up initiative, which will take place from April 19 to April 28.

  • The city will provide free manned dumpsters at various locations for citizens to dispose of unwanted items and offer volunteer opportunities for community members to join the clean-up effort.

Mayor JB Whitten emphasized the importance of the initiative, stating, “To encourage our citizens to ‘Choose the View,’ it is important to continue to make Crestview as attractive as possible. Our spring clean-up initiative is a great way for everyone to contribute.”

Over the past three years, the initiative has brought together more than 150 volunteers from various organizations and groups, including churches, non-profits, and individuals. Hundreds of tons of trash, including tires, mattresses, and small appliances, have been collected at the dumpster sites.

  • City of Crestview employees also dedicate a day during the event to volunteer, assisting with projects such as roofing and painting Habitat for Humanity homes, beautifying cemeteries, and working with citizens in need.

“Over the past three years, it has been amazing to see employees, community leadership, and residents come together to keep Crestview beautiful,” said City Manager Tim Bolduc. “It’s easy for all of us to talk about things that should be done, but events like this allow us to put in the work and get some of those things done.”

Dumpster locations will be available at Old Spanish Trail Park on Stillwell Blvd, Allen Park at 895 McClelland St., and Wildhorse Dr. between 114 and 122 Wildhorse. Employees will be stationed at these locations from 9 am to 7 pm each day to assist citizens with disposing of items such as mattresses, tires, general household items, small appliances, and electronics.

  • However, household trash, hazardous materials, construction debris, and yard waste will not be accepted.

Citizens are reminded that large appliance disposal, furniture disposal, and yard waste pick-up are part of the weekly garbage service provided by Adams Sanitation.

Residents needing to dispose of hazardous waste, such as paint, chemicals, or car batteries, can do so at Okaloosa County’s drop-off site located at 1759 S. Ferdon Blvd.

Individuals interested in volunteering or who know of others who could use assistance are encouraged to contact the Crestview Police Department at 850.682.3544, ext. 7.
