Quoting a Yelm Blog reader’s letter:
“Saturday, May 15th, the City of Yelm had their once-a-year Spring-Garbage-cleanup day for those who live in the city limits and use the garbage service.
The cleanup was held at Yelm City Park from 8 am till 11:30 am.
When I arrives at 8am, the line was already two blocks long;
however, moved very quickly.
The staff greeted each of us in such a pleasant and friendly manner
and next to each dump container, there were two stuff members ready to help;
the whole truck was empty in five minutes.
I left the location elated and grateful.
I felt that the city did a great service for their citizens.
THANK YOU CITY OF YELM!”
