Keep Knoxville Beautiful will host a community-wide cleanup of Mechanicsville on Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m. until noon. Volunteers should meet at Danny Mayfield Park located off College Street.

This is an annual litter cleanup of the Mechanicsville neighborhood. KKB encourages the participation families and neighbors to come together to embrace the importance of caring for the community. Keep Knoxville Beautiful will provide maps, gloves, bags, and litter-pickers.

Volunteers are invited to celebrate their hard work following the cleanup with a picnic lunch provided by Food City. Register by visiting and click on the Upcoming Events link.

The local Western Avenue and Middlebrook Pike Food City stores have been a continued sponsor of the Mechanicsville Community Cleanup. “We have done this the last couple years and plan to do it every year, hopefully. We usually end up with around 50 volunteers between the two of us,” said Middlebrook Pike Store Manager, Ryan Money.
