Fall city-wide clean up to take place in Charleston this weekend


CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) — The City of Charleston will host city-wide clean up on Saturday, October 3.

The clean up is in partnership with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection Rehabilitation Environmental Action Plan’s Make It Shine Program. The city says local businesses, organizations and members of the community are invited to help clean neighborhoods throughout Charleston.

“We all need to do our part and this is an opportunity not only for our young people to get out, socially distanced, it’s a perfect opportunity to give back to your community right now when we have to be distanced from one another to do something together,” Charleston Mayor Amy Shuler Goodwin said.

The clean up will take place in two shifts, 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Bags and litter grabbers will be provided and can be picked up at Kanawha City Community Center, North Charleston Community Center, Roosevelt Neighborhood Center, George Washington High School and Piggly Wiggly on Bigley Avenue.

Snacks, water, masks and hand sanitizer will also be provided. Participants are asked to wear bright clothing.
