By Airman 1st Class Dillon Parker | 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs | Oct. 10, 2017

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The Joint Base San Antonio Proud Week Fall Cleanup is scheduled from Oct. 16-20 in order to enhance the appearance and beautification of Joint Base San Antonio and its facilities, conduct environmental maintenance on the installation and promote a clean work environment. 

The JBSA clean-ups are scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.

This is a JBSA-wide mission; the 502nd Air Base Wing and the 502nd Civil Engineer Squadron are requesting all military, Department of Defense civilians and family members residing on JBSA to participate in the event and assume areas of responsibility based on location.

Mission partners are encouraged to organize a team of volunteers to pick up and properly dispose of trash, debris and clutter in their respective areas. Participants must bundle all trash and transport it to collections points at designated trash sites.

Items to look for are trash, old pallets, junk furniture, tree branches, old cones and other unsightly items.

All military personnel participating in the Proud Week Fall Cleanup Operation will wear either a reflective vest or the reflective belt used during physical training. Eye and ear protection as well as gloves must be worn by all military personnel operating mowing equipment.

In addition, civil engineers will designate “self-help” locations at JBSA-Lackland, JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, JBSA-Randolph and JBSA-Camp Bullis to provide clean-up and appearance improvement items for organizations to use in this effort. Rakes, brooms, trimmers, trash bags, wheel barrows, gloves and safety goggles will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis from the designated self-help locations.

Members can contact their local U-Fix-It facility for cleaning supplies, JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, 210-808-6079, JBSA-Lackland, 210-671-2055, JBSA-Randolph, 210-652-2242.

Organizations are asked to augment the items provided to help ensure adequate safety and cleanup supplies are available for JBSA Proud Week. Once trash bags are filled, individuals can deposit them in one of the designated dumpsters in their area. Dumpsters will be available for green waste and regular trash.
