Brewer Streamside Cleanup This Saturday

Volunteers are needed to help clean up the city of Brewer this Saturday. Crews will work from 8 to noon with a picnic lunch to follow!

Ken Locke, Departmental Services Director in Brewer says the cleanup cuts a large swath across the city. Volunteers will be split up into teams and will be assigned an area in which to clean up whatever they find, and past volunteers tell me it’s amazing the stuff you’ll find. Trash bags are provided but volunteers may want to bring along their own work gloves.

The day starts with volunteers showing up at 8 a.m. at the Brewer Auditorium for coffee, hot chocolate, donuts, and muffins. There will be a quick briefing and then volunteers will meet their team leaders and get their assignments.

At twelve o’clock the work wraps up. Locke says that’s when the fun begins as volunteers are thanked for their help with a barbecue lunch! Volunteers will also be given t-shirts for participating. For more information, visit the City of Brewer’s Facebook page.

This is the 10th year for the Streamside Cleanup and Locke says it’s been extremely successful.

“In the previous nine years we’ve had two thousand volunteers and we’ve collected over thirty tons of trash during those cleanup events, which could have easily ended up in the waters of Maine and polluted it.”

So grab your family and friends and head to the Brewer Auditorium on Saturday morning to help out. It’s a great way to make a difference while enjoying the spring air!
