The sixth annual Alberta Earth Day clean up, Operation Clean Sweep, will be held on April 23. The event is presented by Pacific Power and organized by Alberta Main Street. It provides an opportunity for friends and neighbors to get involved with their community by cleaning up litter and removing graffiti on Alberta between MLK Blvd. and 33rd Ave.
The Golden Garbage Awards and post-cleanup festivities will take place immediately following the clean-up, with pizza, Salt and Straw ice cream and a raffle featuring prizes from local businesses. Volunteers will also receive a $5.00 coupon valid for any purchase at participating Alberta Street businesses. The celebration will end around 1:30 p.m.
Volunteer check-in is at 10:00 a.m. at Alberta Central (Northeast 18th and Alberta) and clean up starts at 10:30 a.m. Volunteers are asked to bring their own water bottle, gloves and tools, such as screwdrivers, pliers and razor blade scrapers.
