Keep Fishers Beautiful
Volunteerism has a profound impact on those receiving support and those donating their time to make a meaningful difference in someone else’s life and in our community. On Saturday, April 15, join the City of Fishers, local businesses and organizations to help Keep Fishers Beautiful (KFB)! For more information about KFB, please contact Dan Domsic at or at (317) 595-3151. Register to volunteer here and check out these Top 5 Ways to Keep Fishers Beautiful this year!

Events Planning Fall 2017 
KFB
This fall, Keep Fishers Beautiful will take place on Saturday, September 9th, and is themed Roadways & Waterways as the city works to beautify popular corridors. Taking place from 8 a.m. to noon, there are opportunities for residents of all ages to roll up their sleeves and dive in for a good cause!

Volunteers/volunteer groups interested in participating should consider the age of volunteers and anticipated work that will be done at each project site. For the most part, projects fall into two categories: near the White River or on land.

  • Individuals interested in volunteering with the White River Alliance to support the White River Clean-Up can register ahead of time or on site the morning of the event. Volunteers of all ages are welcome, but parents, your supervision is required during the event. 
  • Individuals interested in completing work in other areas will be charged with projects along various roads in Fishers. Additional details, including specific locations, will be disclosed closer to the event. Pre-registration is appreciated ahead of time for this project, and volunteers should be 16 years of age or older. Pre-registration is appreciated by August 28th and can be completed by emailing Dan Domsic or by calling him at (317) 595-3151. 

Volunteers will receive a t-shirt and free lunch for participating. All supplies will be provided, and no prior experience is necessary. Groups are encouraged to sign up together!

Fall City Recycling Day 

The City of Fishers is offering a free recycling day for residents on Saturday, September 30 from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. at Billericay Park. Electronics, household items and household hazardous wastes will be accepted. Paper recycling and off-site confidential
document shredding will also be offered. Some items (such as monitors and TVs) may include a small recycling fee. More information coming soon!

New in 2017: Blitz Box


The Keep Fishers Beautiful initiative is also expanding this year to include opportunities for neighborhoods to unite and band together, year-round! Blitz Boxes will be available in an ongoing fashion throughout the year, and will include a small supply of gloves, safety glasses, garbage bags and the use of a 30 yard dumpster. Applying is easy! An HOA representative will complete the application, pledging a neighborhood clean-up that will benefit everyone. Applications should focus on the common spaces and facades, and must be completed four weeks in advance of their pledged clean-up day.

After notified, neighborhoods selected will have support from Fishers Parks & Recreation and Fishers Department of Public Works to finalize logistics and arrange delivery of the dumpster. Groups are encouraged to take photographs and document the impact the Blitz Box has on beautifying their neighborhood! Apply online to have a Blitz Box in your neighborhood sometime during 2017.
