Nominate Cheney resident to receive free yardwork

In conjunction with its annual community clean-up day, Cheney is seeking nominations of elderly or disabled residents to receive free spring cleaning yard work.

The work will be done 9 a.m. to noon April 22 and may include raking, pruning and removal of yard waste.

Preference will be given to owner-occupied homes, which must be located within Cheney city limits. To nominate someone for yardwork assistance, contact Cheney Code Enforcement Officer Capt. Rick Campbell at or by phone at (509) 498-9334. A limited number of residents can receive help, and recipients will be notified prior to April 22.

Yardwork assistance will be provided by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as well as local Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts troops.

Cheney Clean Sweep is in its 10th year and features a variety of spring-cleaning activities, such as litter pickup in public spaces, free disposal of unmounted passenger vehicle tires and free disposal of household hazardous waste such as paints, cleaners and solvents.
