Boone Clean-Up Day
Volunteers will be seen along Boone streets and streams for the statewide Litter Sweep during a two-week period beginning April 26 through May 10.
The town of Boone kicks off the sweep with the biannual "Boone Clean-up Day" on Saturday, April 26, clearing unsightly litter that has accumulated along streets and streams during the winter.
Boone residents may participate by cleaning their premises, placing rubbish curbside and calling the Public Works Department at (828) 268-6230 for free convenient removal during the sweep.
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 along the roadsides and in the streams within the town limits to the Public Works Center on Boone Clean-up Day. Come join us from noon to 1:30 p.m. for free refreshments and to share fun community fellowship," a town spokesman said.
Interested participants may come by the Town of Boone Public Works Center located at 321 East King St. between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. to pick up cleaning supplies or they 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/flower bed coordinator Shannon Isaacs at (828) 268-6230.
