Saturday’s event will kick off the statewide “Spring Litter Sweep 2012” proclaimed by Governor Beverly Perdue. The litter sweep spans a two-week period from April 14 to April 28, 2012.
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 ofBoonewill 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 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. for refreshments and to share the day’s experiences.
Interested participants may come by the Town ofBoone Public Works Center located at 321 East King Street between 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to pick up cleanup 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.
