Saturday, April 30 will be the day for the Alton City-Wide Spring Litter Clean Up.  There will be check-in stations at the corner of 3rd & Belle Streets as well as at Hellrung Park at the corner of 7th Street and Central Avenue.

Groups will also depart from Neudecker Insurance in Upper Alton and Joe K’s Restaurant in North Alton.  Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee chairman Carolyn MacAfee tells The Big Z anyone can take part in the effort, even if you are cleaning up your own area by yourself.

She wants to stress this is not a bulk-item pick up.  This year's clean up starts at 9am April 30th rain or shine.
