JBSA Proud Week Winter Cleanup takes place Jan. 6 - 10

By Senior Airman Dillon Parker 502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

The Joint Base San Antonio Proud Week Winter Cleanup is scheduled from Jan. 6-10 in order to enhance the appearance and beautification of JBSA 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 502d Air Base Wing and the 502d 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.

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 Winter 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.

Members can contact their local U-Fix-It facility for outdoor cleaning supplies, JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, 210-221-3837, JBSA-Lackland, 210-671-2055, JBSA-Randolph, 210-652-2242.

Organizations are asked 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.

If you have questions or need assistance for the removal and transportation of bulky items call the civil engineer heavy repair line at 210-671-3015 or the civil engineer energy management control system desk 210-671-2288/2289.
