ASD Super Sweepers aim to clean up our city, Saturday, April 29, 2017
On Saturday, April 29, citizens from Girdwood to Chugiak may notice Anchorage School District Super Sweepers picking up trash at their schools and surrounding areas. Super Sweepers Saturday kicks off the weeklong effort to beautify our community and spread the word about litter prevention. This year marks the Anchorage Chamber’s 49th annual cleanup event.
Volunteer school coordinators organize and motivate their students to pick up trash on and around their school campuses. Last year, more than 60 schools participated, with many schools collecting more than 100 bags of trash each.
Community members can pick up and drop off the orange cleanup bags at their participating neighborhood school, and are encouraged to return the filled bags to the school by the designated trash pickup time.
While most district schools are participating on Super Sweepers Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on April 29, some are holding their cleanups at other times during the week. Trash pickup on Saturday, April 29 is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m., so all trash should be deposited in the school’s pre-determined spot for pickup before 2 p.m.
- No household trash or home appliances.
- No yard clippings or leaves from private homes.
- No large items such as fencing, pipe, logs or bushes.
- No hazardous waste such as batteries, paint, tires.
