The annual fall cleanup is underway in De Queen, Arkansas.

Crews were out Monday morning cleaning debris from ditches.  This week, the city wil pick up big items from residents, such as unwanted furniture and appliances.

Residents are also urged to drop off unused paint at the fire station.  Mayor Billy Ray McKelvey said a clean city is a community effort.  “While the city crews can do some of the work it’s too big a job just for us.  Everybody has to do a little bit.  Pick up an area around your home, around your business, a place where you walk or something,” he said.

The fall cleanup lasts through this Friday.
