The City of Longview and Keep Longview Beautiful will host the Citywide Cleanup and Tire Recycling on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011.
The purpose of the events is to encourage residents to beautify the Longview community by removing litter and eliminating junk tires.

According to Community Relations Coordinator Mary Jane Burnett, “The Citywide Cleanup is a special event that we hold twice a year to encourage residents to help clean our community, but people can volunteer anytime throughout the year. I am looking forward to seeing all of our wonderful volunteers from previous events, and I also want to give a special thank you to some of the new adopt a park sponsors of Paul Boorman Trail and Teague Park. No matter when or where people choose to volunteer, they can help make a difference.”

Citywide Cleanup volunteers are encouraged to clean the street or park of their choice. Volunteers can register, receive supplies, and enjoy refreshments at the event kickoff, which will be held from 8:30 – 9:30 a.m. at the Longview Public Library, 222 W. Cotton St.
