Newmanistas To Participate in the Great American Clean-up

Bailey Chew helps clean-up the Mayfield Wildscape

It's that time again. Newmanistas will participate in the Great American Clean-up this Saturday, April 10. Neighbors can gather trash, junk, litter and yard waste and put it in a roll-off that will be available at Newman Park from 8 until Noon.

Saturday's clean-up will be followed by a Scenic Drive litter pick-up on Sunday, April 11, during Scenic Sunday 6 to 11 in the morning.

GAC is sponsored locally by Keep El Paso Beautiful in partnership with the El Paso Fire Department, Environmental Services Department and the El Paso Street Department.

KEPB Director, Katherine Gunter-Palafox, says: "The 2010 GAC reminds us that a better environment for all of us starts in our own communities. The volunteer work we do close to home affects our entire planet."
