Once and a while, every town gets a little messy. So you do something about it. That is what the city of Canton, Missouri will be doing on Saturday, October 5. That will be the day of the Canton Clean Up.

Get rid of old stuff that is sitting out in the yard or behind the shed and dump it. This will be a city-wide clean up in Canton.

At the same time, the Canton Recycling Center will be hosting an electronic recycling day. This event is open to all Lewis County residents. Items containing Freon will not be accepted.

Just down the road, LaGrange, Missouri will hold their city wide clean up day on Wednesday, October 16. Be proud of your town and help keep it clean!
