I Love SPI Campaign

Posted: Updated:

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND - The City of South Padre Island is asking the community to love the Island this Valentine's Day.

The City has partnered with Republic Services to promote the "I Love SPI" campaign to help residents and businesses by adding an extra brush and bulky item pick-up service to the regular monthly service.

Residents and businesses may place brush and bulky items at the front of their property for collection during the campaign, which will run through February 14.

"People spotted participating in the campaign may be awarded an I Love SPI t-shirt," said Victor Baldovinos, environmental health director. "Take advantage and clear your property of unnecessary debris and bulky items."

This year, the City is encouraging the community to bring recyclable items to the regular recycling drop-off service held every Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Community Center, located at 4501 Padre Blvd.

Acceptable recycling items include: #1 and #2 plastics, office paper, newspaper, cardboard, tin and aluminum. For more information, contact the Environmental Health Services Department at (956) 761-8123.
