Central Ave. Street Clean-Up
November 1 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
HeightsNEXT is organizing volunteers for the 5th annual fall cleanup along Central Avenue. Volunteers’ efforts will freshen up local streetscapes and prevent trash from drifting with next spring’s melting snow through storm drains into the Mississippi River.
Interested volunteers should meet at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 1, in the parking lot of the Columbia Heights Public Library, 3939 Central Ave NE, Columbia Heights. Bags & safety vests are provided to aid in picking up litter. Volunteers should bring their own gloves and dress appropriately for trash cleanup. This event will be socially distanced, with each group of volunteers dispersing to clean their own section of Central Avenue. Please wear masks when picking up and returning vests and bags! After volunteers complete their cleanup, they are invited to meet back at the Columbia Heights Public Library to return vests and pick up some ‘to go’ refreshments! The cleanup will occur whether “rain or shine”, so participants should dress for the weather.
To volunteer for the clean-up, please sign up on the event on HeightsNEXT’s Facebook page, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply show up on the day of the event.
