Mid-Cities Bulky Waste Cleanup

In celebration of Earth Day, Chesterfield’s Department of Community Enhancement partnered with Mid-Cities Civic Association to organize a cleanup event for residents. The result was the removal of seven tons of unwanted household items from the community. County staff and many volunteers assisted homeowners with getting items to the curb and loading them into trucks for disposal. This is the first of six cleanup events the county will partner with communities this year. The next cleanup will occur May 19 in the Mistwood Forest community. Volunteers are always needed. Contact Pam Cooper at 751-2227 if you are interested in volunteering.

Friendly Phone Calls Keep Seniors Connected, Safe

SeniorsThe Chesterfield County Senior Advocate's Telephone Reassurance Program is seeking seniors in the community to receive friendly phone calls from volunteers. Volunteers receive training and make their calls from the Senior Advocate's office four days a week. Seniors can receive calls two, three or four days. Volunteers provide moral support through telephone check-ins to make sure a senior is okay. They will not solve problems, but will provide a listening ear. These calls offer increased socialization, as well as safety checks, and give lonely, isolated individuals something to look forward to. Seniors who would like to receive calls must fill out an application listing their contact information and other details. For more information about this free program, call 768-7878 or email
