‘Clean Evansville’ Kicks Off Third Year This Saturday!
Clean Evansville will target the North Main Street area during the monthly trash pick-up this Saturday, January 4, from 9am-11am. The teams will gather at locations near North Main and Division Street to collect litter along streets and through some neighborhoods west and north of the intersection.
Teams are assigned to pick up trash and litter in the following locations; Division Street from First Avenue to Kentucky Avenue, North Main from Division to Morgan Avenue, Morgan from North Main to First Avenue, Columbia Street from North Main to First Avenue, Harriet Street from Morgan to Columbia, and Franklin Street from North Main to First Avenue.
The teams will meet at the parking lot near Bosse Field to deposit trash collected during the clean-up. Clean Evansville has partnered with Allied Waste to depose of all trash.
Since its inception in January, 2012, Mayor Winnecke and the Clean Evansville Initiative have collected over 50,000 pounds of litter and trash with the assistance of 3,500 volunteers.
Keep Evansville Beautiful coordinates volunteers for the monthly clean-ups. Anyone interested in joining or forming a team should contact Mike McGarrah at 425-4461.
