Getting a handle on litter around Alton continues to be a goal of the Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee. There is City-Wide Clean Up scheduled for late April. While it may seem a bit early to be promoting it, the chairman of the committee says she hopes the early promotion will allow them to pick up areas they had to pass over last fall.
Historically, several community service organizations and individuals participate in this event. Carolyn Gronemeier hopes that is the case again this year.
She says they will be sorting recyclables and non-recyclables as they work that day. This year's clean-up is set for Saturday, April 27.
