Trash Clean Up Event Is Set
People in several cities will take part this weekend in the nation’s largest community improvement project.
The Keep America Beautiful organization promotes the Great American Clean-up on weekends in April to encourage people to pick up trash, and remove small debris from parks, school yards and other public ways. Melvin Edwards of Keep Springfield Beautiful says more than one million tons of trash has been collected over the last six years.
Volunteers can go to one of four locations to pick up free bags, gloves and bottled water.
