The lineup includes:
City Recycling Day

Fishers neighborhoods are encouraged to beautify their common spaces and facades for fall, and are invited to use complementary gloves and trash bags provided by the City of Fishers throughout the month of October. Local neighborhoods can also participate in the City’s Blitz Box program, which includes a cleanup kit and the use of a 20-yard dumpster. HOA representatives can complete an Blitz Box application and request supplies at ThisIsFishers.com/KFB.
