Spring Community Clean-Up!

March 28th, 2020 10am – 2pm

Join the Keep Sidney Beautiful Board in cleaning up our towns and villages!

This is going to be the first of our scheduled community clean up for 2020, and the start of the Great American Clean Up line of events.
Keep Sidney Beautiful will be hosting a series of events from March – May as part of Keep America Beautiful’s Great American Clean Up.

We are looking for teams of volunteers to help us get litter off the streets and sidewalks of our towns and villages. This event will allow us to index our communities in preparation for the Great Trash Race.

Depending on how many volunteers we have sign up, we will send teams out to each village in Cheyenne County.

Follow Keep Sidney Beautiful on Facebook to join the event and get the latest updates!
