Alternatively, volunteers can simply pick up litter in their neighborhood and deposit it in their trash & recycle bins.

The bi-annual cleanups are coordinated by Pride, Incorporated, collaborating with Alton Main Street who share the vision and understanding that litter-free streets are essential for maintaining a high quality of life and instilling community pride while keeping our area attractive to visitors and potential new business. Thus, promoting the inspiration for “Love Where You Live”.

To make this community cleaning effort as successful as possible, we are appealing to youth groups, service organizations, business associations, and other similar groups to adopt sections of the main thoroughfares in town and clean them up during this event and beyond if they are so inclined.

For more information or to adopt an area that needs attention, please contact Pride Inc. at pride@prideincorporated.org.
