Join in a community wide spring clean-up effort

   Grand Island, Neb.—The City of Grand Island Streets Division and Grand Island Area Clean Community System have partnered together for a community clean-up opportunity in recognition of Earth Day on Sunday, April 22. Clean up teams also may opt for a longer term clean-up commitment of Adopting-A-Road. Supposed

   Volunteers serve an important role in keeping roadsides clean and attractive. Participants can pick litter up on any road or area in Grand Island but are encouraged to pick up at least one mile, each side of the roadway, or a total designated area. Teams can pick any spring date to do the service project and should coordinate with the Clean Community System for project supplies.

   Residents, businesses or service groups who are interested in the Adopt-A-Road program make a commitment of twice a year cleaning up the assigned area—once in the spring and once late summer or early fall. Groups or organizations will be recognized with an official Adopt-a-Road sign at each of the adopted roadway sections.

   Please contact Clean Community System Executive Director Denise McGovern-Gallagher for more details, to get signed up for the Earth Day clean up, or to become an Adopt-a-Road participant. Interested participants can call 308-385-5095 or email Ideally, teams are encouraged to sign-up at least 24 hours before the desired clean-up date so road signs and supplies can be gathered.
