The City of Roswell is encouraging people of all ages to demonstrate that they love where they live by joining hands and volunteering for the 2014 Great American Cleanup.
The local Great American Cleanup movement will be highlighted with Keep Roswell Beautiful hosting a Community Cleanup Registration and Supply Pickup on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Volunteers will be provided with trash cleanup supplies such as trash bags, gloves, a free T-shirt and coupons for free dumping at the City of Roswell landfill. Refreshments will also be provided.
