WASHINGTON (AP) — A nonprofit business group in downtown Washington is doing a spring cleaning in honor of cherry blossom season.

The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District says its spring cleaning week will start Saturday and continue through the next week. The spring cleaning includes a pressure washing of sidewalks and cleanup of the seven parks in the neighborhood.

The group is also holding a cell phone recycling event called “Flower for Phones.” Anyone who turns in an old cell phone during the recycling will get a potted plant. The cell phone recycling events will take place Tuesday and Wednesday in Farragut Square Park and Duke Ellington Park.
