Volunteers needed in city cleanup this weekend
El Paso, Texas (KTSM) — The City of El Paso Environmental Services Dept. is encouraging locals to get out into the community and help clean up the hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash that litter the Sun City each year.
The 2014 Great American Cleanup, started by Keep America Beautiful, will take place Sat. Apr. 26 in El Paso at 28 different cleanup sites from 8 a.m. to noon.
In 2013, nearly 1 million pounds of litter and debris were disposed of, 222 miles of roads cleaned, and 251 acres of parks and public lands cleared of trash in El Paso.
To volunteer or set up a cleaning site in your neighborhood, call ESD's Romie Ruiz at (915) 621-6709.
