Saturday – April 23rd – 10AM – 2PM
Alberta Main Street is working to help Alberta Street achieve its full potential as a vibrant business district. One of our main goals has been to implement a new waste pickup and graffiti-removal program, to help keep the street sparkling. To kickoff the regular street cleanings, Alberta Main Street is hosting a neighborhood “Deep Clean”, encouraging community members to come out on Earth Day for a morning of trash pickup and good “clean” fun.

In keeping with the spirit of the neighborhood, this will be more than just a day of litter removal. Prizes will be awarded at the Golden Garbage Awards and of course there will be food. Volunteers are encouraged to participate as individuals or in teams—come in costume, if you like—there will be a prize for best team spirit.

Grab you gloves and join us. Volunteers will be assigned areas of the Alberta Street neighborhood when you register the morning of the event at Alberta Central (the courtyard between Umpqua Bank & Barista) – pre-register at the link below and we look forward to seeing you on the 23rd – rain or shine!

All participants will receive a special thank you gift from Alberta Main Street, and an After Party is planned to celebrate the day’s hard work.
