Originally published April 8, 2013. The Town of Boone invites all citizens to join us as we participate in “Boone Cleanup Day” on Saturday, April 20, 2013. Saturday’s event is in conjunction with the statewide “Spring Litter Sweep 2013” proclaimed by Governor Pat McCrory. The litter sweep spans a two-week period from April 13 to 27, 2013.
Any individual, group or civic organization is encouraged to participate by volunteering to remove the unsightly litter that has accumulated along our streets and streams during the winter. Town of Boone residents may participate by cleaning their premises, placing rubbish curbside and calling the Public Works Department for free convenient removal.
The Town of Boone will also be awarding monetary prizes to the winners of the “Most Unusual Litter Contest”. You may enter the contest by bringing unusual litter found on the roadsides and in the streams within the city limits to the Public Works Center on the event day. Come join us from 12:00pm-1:30pm for refreshments and fun fellowship.
Interested participants may come by the Town of Boone Public Works Center located at 321 East King Street between 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to pick up clean-up supplies or you may choose to pick up supplies prior to the event.
For more information and to register for the event, contact Boone’s Adopt-A-Street/Stream/Flowerbed Coordinator Shannon Isaacs at 828-268-6230.
