The City of Greenacres Public Works Department is committed
to enhance the lives of our residents through community
outreach programs such as the Paint Your Heart Out, Arbor
Day, and the Great American Cleanup.
Paint Your Heart Out provides
assistance to low-income homeowners, especially those
who are seniors or disabled. The program provides free
paint, materials, and volunteer labor to applicants whose
homes are in need of exterior painting and minor repair
work. The program uses recycled paint donated by the
Solid Waste Authority and relies on volunteers fueled
by kindness and goodwill who are willing to sacrifice
a Saturday morning to not only help those in need, but
also to improve the aesthetics of our community. Click

Arbor Day is a nationally
celebrated observance that encourages tree planting and
care. Founded by J. Sterling Morton in Nebraska in 1872,
National Arbor Day is celebrated each year on the last
Friday in April. The City of Greenacres continued its
commitment to planting, nurturing, and recognizing the
importance of trees.
Keep Greenacres Beautiful.
Each year thousands of volunteers of all ages across America
take part in efforts to clean up and improve their local
communities. This includes a massive removal of litter
and illegal dumping from neighborhoods, roadways, waterways,
parks, schools, etc. This event takes place in April.
Residents, Girl Scouts, public officials, children’s
groups, and concerned citizens volunteer to cleanup the
A & B Canals, and other road right-of-ways.
The City encourages residents to contact
the Public Works Department to inquire about programs
that they may qualify for and also to inquire about volunteer
opportunities in these and other City-wide programs and
