ALTON, ILLINOIS - The Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee, partnering with various community organizations, is planning the City’s annual Fall Litter Cleanup to be held at 9am on Saturday, September 13, 2014.
On September 13th, volunteers can register, pick up free gloves and bags, and get directions to the areas that need the most attention by meeting at 9am at 200 W. 3rd Street or at the entrance to Hellrung Park at 7th St. Central Ave. Groups will also be departing on that day at 9am from Neudecker Insurance (corner of Main St. & College Ave.) and from Joe K’s Restaurant (2350 State Street).
We hope to get another great turnout at this year’s Fall Cleanup,” said Alderwoman Carolyn MacAfee, Chairwoman of the Alton Beautification and Clean City Committee (ABCCC). “Historically, several community service organizations and individuals have participated in this event, and we hope to have similar success this year as we continue our efforts to beautify Alton and improve the quality of life for our citizens."
