The head of the Alton City-Wide Fall Litter Clean Up says the clean-up will continue rain or shine. 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, but you are welcome to clean up any part of the city you choose to.
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 Saturday rain or shine.
