Opelika City Wide Cleanup happening this weekend

Keep Opelika Beautiful Prepares for Citywide Cleanup 


 On Saturday, March 3rd volunteers of Keep  Opelika Beautiful will be participating in the Citywide Cleanup. This  local effort, an extension of the national program, Great American  Cleanup, is an opportunity for citizens to join together in the fight  against litter. Over 200 volunteers joined Keep Opelika Beautiful in  2017 to participate in the event.  


The Great American  Cleanup was established by Keep America Beautiful, Inc., the nation's  leading nonprofit that builds and sustains clean, green and more  beautiful communities. The event is the nation’s largest annual cleanup,  beautification and community improvement program. Each year, the Great  American Cleanup engages more than 4 million volunteers in 20,000  communities across the country to take action in their local communities  to create positive change.  


“For the past 15 years, Keep  Opelika Beautiful has coordinated this one-day cleanup for our City.   “said Tipi Miller, director of Keep Opelika Beautiful. “Most of these  volunteers clean their designated roadways throughout the year but this  is one day where we all work together. This year we are fortunate to  partner with the 2018 Twenty Under Forty class to increase participation  in the Citywide Cleanup.”  


The Opelika Exchange Club  feed all volunteers after the morning of picking up litter. Also helping  with supplies is East Alabama Medical Center. Businesses and citizens  are encouraged to join Keep Opelika Beautiful in the fight against  litter.
