Toss No Mass citywide cleanup is Oct. 8


Individual volunteers, groups and civic organizations are invited to register for this year’s City of Las Cruces “Toss No Mas” cleanup event, which will be held 8 a.m.-noon Saturday, Oct. 8, the city said in a news release.

Keep Las Cruces Beautiful, the city Parks and Recreation Department and New Mexico Clean and Beautiful will host “Toss No Mas,” which began in the 1990s.

Keep Las Cruces Beautiful will have a centralized location, Young Park, 1905 Nevada Ave., for information, identified locations and supplies the morning of the event, the city said. Volunteers can pick up supplies 8 a.m.-noon and 1-5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3-Friday, Oct. 7, in the south parking lot of Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 W. Bell Ave.
