KINGSPORT — Time to clean up, Model City


Once again, the Kingsport Sanitation Department and Keep Kingsport Beautiful are announcing the annual Clean Up, Pick Up and Recycle event — a two-week period where residents can put out extra items on the road for trash and garbage crews to collect.

The CPR event begins April 4 and runs through April 15, with the pickup days being on the resident’s regularly scheduled garbage, trash and recycling days, said Rodney Deal, sanitation manager for the city.

Kingsport will also be doing its last loose leaf pickup of the season during these two weeks.

Last year, Kingsport collected 700 tons of trash and 700 tons of garbage during the CPR event.
