UNION CITY — It's nearly time for some spring cleaning. 

The Union City Police Department is sponsoring a Clean-Up Day and Union City Borough is holding a free tire-recycling event. Both are scheduled for Saturday, June 1. 

Union City Police invite the public to participate in their third annual Clean-Up Day from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on June 1. The department is looking for volunteers to join in on its mission of removing litter from borough streets.

Anyone interested in volunteering to pick up litter and clean up the town are asked to meet at the Union City Borough building, 13 S. Main St., Union City. 

"We're just trying to do whatever we can clean up the town, clean up the streets and hopefully that excites other people to do the same," Union City Police Chief David Pernice. 

Everything will be provided by the police department, so all volunteers have to do is show up. UC police will have garbage bags, safety vests and water.

The police department will also provide some food for after the event.

Union City Police has hosted its annual Clean-Up Day earlier the last two years but decided to move it back this year because inclement weather was a problem in the past.

"We don't want to run into that problem no more so we pushed it back a little bit to try to find some warmer, nicer weather," Pernice said. 

Meanwhile, that same day, borough officials will be providing a tire recycling dumpster  from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Union City Borough Garage, 35 Willow St., Union City. 

The dumpster is free to Union City Borough residents but they will be required to show proof of residency. 

There is a maximum of five tires per address and the tires must be removed from rims. 

The tire collection is made possible by Union City Borough and a partial grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.

Any questions can be directed to Union City Borough at 814-438-2331.
