Boone Clean-Up Day is Sept. 22
by Staff Reports
The town of Boone is inviting all residents to join in Boone Clean-Up Day on Saturday, Sept. 22.
The event coincides with the statewide Fall Litter Sweep 2012, a designation from Gov. Beverly Perdue that encourages residents to clean up their communities between Sept. 15 and Sept. 29.
Individuals, groups and civil organizations may volunteer to remove unsightly litter that has accumulated along streets and streams. The Boone Public Works Center, located at 321 E. King St., will provide clean-up supplies between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. that day or before the event.
The town also will award monetary prizes to winners of the
“Most Unusual Litter Contest.” Participants can enter the contest by bringing
unusual trash items found on the roadsides or streams within city limits to the
Public Works Center on Sept. 22.
Participants also can join the department from noon to 1:30 p.m. on clean-up day for refreshments and to share the day’s experiences.
The Boone Public Works Department also will accept calls requesting curbside pickup of bagged litter.
For more information and to register for the event, contact Boone’s Adopt-A-Street/Stream/Flowerbed Coordinator Shannon Isaacs at (828) 268-6230.
