The City of South Padre Island (SPI) is asking the community to show the Island some love this Valentine’s Day. The City, in partnership with Allied Waste, is promoting the “I Love SPI” campaign to help residents get involved in maintaining the Island’s natural beauty by adding extra brush and bulky item pick-up services to the regular monthly service.
During the campaign, which runs up to February 14, residents may place brush and bulky items at the front of the property for collection without facing imposed fines. So, take advantage and clear your yard and house of unnecessary debris and items. Mow and trim around fences, utility easements and trim your trees and plants to spruce up SPI. Your property will look better and your home will be safer from brush fires and other hazards.
The “I Love SPI” campaign was introduced in 2012. This year, the City is also encouraging residents to bring recyclable items to the regular recycling drop-off service held every Saturday from 8-11 a.m. by City Hall. Regular items accepted include plastic, paper, newspaper, cardboard, tin and aluminum. During the “I Love SPI” campaign, the City will also be accepting tires to further help clean up the island.
