Richmond Hill is set to celebrate Georgia Cities Week from April 13-19.
Georgia Cities Week is an annual celebration, sponsored by the Georgia Municipal Association, to highlight the contributions cities make to the lives of their residents.
One of the activities this year is the curbside pick-up of large items not normally picked up by the city.
Goodwill will join forces with the city to celebrate Georgia Cities Week by picking up anything recyclable (furniture, clothing, household goods, computers) during April 13–19.
