We all like to be clean, we shower, we get haircuts and we wash our cars.

Why not buff up our city? Give it a buff! Enter, Clean City Danbury Day.

Clean City Day comes straight from Danbury Mayor Dean Esposito's office, and it's right around the corner. The Mayor's office sent out a press release on Monday making the announcement that Clean City Day is Saturday, May 7, 2022.

The idea is for residents to clean their own property of trees, debris and unwanted garbage which will avoid blight and instill pride. It's not simply that the city is asking you to clean up, they are offering you some savings to do so.

Between 8 AM and Noon on May 7th, residents can unload the "unwanted items" free of charge, dropping them off at five different locations throughout Danbury. Organizations, churches and families can even adopt a street to clean.

This event has been made possible thanks to a partnership with Oak Ridge Waste and Recycling. In the release the Mayor had this to say of Clean City Danbury Day:

“I am excited for the return of Clean City Danbury Day. For years, our community has come together to clean up homes, properties, and our city streets. It’s because of the commitment and dedication of our residents that Danbury continues to be the best city to live, work, and raise a family. I look forward to seeing all of you on May 7 for the return of this important event.”

If you are interested in adopting a street contact Jon Barney at  j.barney@danbury-ct.gov or call 203-797-4511.

There five locations drop off locations are:

  • Danbury City Hall (155 Deer Hill Avenue)
  • Public Works Facility (53 Newtown Road)
  • Danbury P.A.L. (35 Hayestown Road)
  • Rogers Park (By the Tennis Courts)
  • WCSU Westside Campus (43 Lake Avenue Extension) - Maybe WestConn will suggest the city change the name of "Clean City Day" to "Eliminate Waste Day" because "Clean City Day" implies the city is dirty, and that is just too much to handle mentally.

For a list of accepted items visit: www.danbury-ct.gov/cleancity and to volunteer, please email J.barney@danbury-ct.gov.

I would have called it "Give it a Buff Day", for sure.
