Volunteer to help with cleanup Mill City roads and parks

Residents of Mill City are invited to help remove litter from the roadsides and parks. The Canyon Catalysts, along with SOLVE, hosts the event July 9. 

Trash bags, bags for recyclables, disposable gloves and bright vests will be provided. Volunteers should bring closed-toed shoes and work clothes, water and a grabber, if desired. Bathrooms will be available at Kimmel and Falls parks.

Volunteers will work in pairs in a pre-assigned section of town from 9 – 11 a.m. If they finish their assigned area before 11 am., they will be directed to another public space.

All youth age 14 and younger must be accompanied by a parent. Youth 15 to 17 years of age who aren’t with an adult must have a parent or guardian sign a separate youth waiver form. 

Volunteers will meet behind the Mill City Fire Station, 440 S First Ave., at 9 a.m. Volunteers are asked to park behind the fire station, not in front of it or on the street.

Snacks and drinks will be provided at the completion of the event.

Joining together during this project will both improve the appearance of Mill City and foster personal commitment, cooperation and camaraderie, said the event’s organizers.
