|Clifton Forge Designates April 24 as Community Clean Up Day|
Clifton Forge, VA (April 12, 2021) - Corridor Curb Appeal Vision 2025 is holding its annual Spring Spruce-Up Day on Saturday, April 24. The Corridor Curb Appeal Committee is working together with Clifton Forge Town Hall to extend the clean-up to the entire Town. Hours for the Community Clean-up are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Neighborhood groups, Downtown Merchants, Adopt-a-Spot participants, people who enjoy walking the Town trails and using the Town Parks are all invited to participate in the effort to clean up the Town.
The Corridor Curb Appeal Volunteers will meet at Town Hall at 8:00 am and will collect litter and debris from the entrance corridors to the Town. Their hours are 8:00 am to 11:00 am. Special attention will be focused on the Tunnels on Main Street and the areas near exits 24 and 27 exits. Volunteers will be supplied with orange safety vests and orange trash bags. Masks are required if you work with volunteers outside your friend or family bubble. Trash pick-up tools and work gloves are suggested for Volunteers to bring with them.
Since April has been designated as Clean-up Month in the Alleghany Highlands and governmental bodies have signed resolutions to that effect, Clifton Forge is focusing on one day of clean-up, Saturday, April 24. Chuck Unroe, Town Manager has agreed to supply Town trucks to pick up trash in the neighborhoods, trails and parks. Volunteers may put anything, except tires on the curb and trucks will collect the trash, litter and debris on Saturday, April 24; and if necessary, Monday, April 26 and Tuesday, April 27.
Orange trash bags are available at Town Hall on Saturday, April 24 while supplies last or on Earth Day, April 22. â€śWe really hope the citizens of Clifton Forge will respond to a day of community clean-up and work as individuals, in groups, or in organizations such as church and service clubs, to labor together and spend a couple of hours to clean up a specified area of the Town and in the neighborhoods. Although the Corridor Curb Appeal Volunteers do this on an annual basis, they focus on the entrance corridors of the Town. Having a community effort takes us beyond the corridors and into the neighborhoods, parks and trails, town gardens and other spots that need cleaning up. The visual results are immediateâ€ť, said Chuck Unroe, Clifton Forge Town Manager.
