Clean Up and Green Up– Green River May 16th

GREEN RIVER — The Green River Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the City of Green River is excited to announce its 2015 City-Wide Clean Up. Similar to past annual events, City of Green River citizens are encouraged to help beautify the city by picking up trash and debris that has collected over the past year. The event is planned for Saturday, May 16th. Areas of focus include the business corridors and education and recreation areas within the city limits.

On Saturday, May 16th volunteers will congregate at the Green River Chamber of Commerce/Visitor Center at 8:00 am to enjoy breakfast, get garbage bags, gloves and a FREE t-shirt, then choose an area to clean. Volunteers will then proceed to their assigned area and collect trash and debris until 11:00 am. Items for disposal need to be placed on the curb so that City employees can haul them to the dump.

The City-wide Clean-Up week will be held May 11-15, following with the Saturday City-Wide Clean-Up day. During the week-long event, the City provides a flatbed service so that citizens can put large items out with their weekly trash for pick-up. Also during that week, other entities such as Sweetwater County School District #2 and the Sheriff’s Department volunteer their services.
