MINOT — The City of Minot is searching for volunteers on April 15 to help clean up debris and trash that has been blown out of the City landfill in southwest Minot.
The event is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., with volunteers gathering north of the water tower located on 30th Street Southwest, north of 37th Avenue Southwest.
“I encourage volunteers to dress appropriately as clothing and shoes will get dirty,” Minot Mayor Shaun Sipma said. “I also strongly suggest volunteers wear gloves, and bring a ‘grabber’ or ‘trash picker’ if they have one. We’ll be working to clean up debris over three quarter-sections of land, so there’s a lot of work to do.”
Several businesses are partnering with the city to provide necessary items for this event, including Target, Home Depot, Menards, Wal-Mart, Cash Wise Foods, and Marketplace Foods.
“Multiple community businesses and partners quickly stepped forward to participate in this event and to provide materials including trash bags and water,” Sipma said. “I’m never surprised by Minot’s positive reaction when something needs to get done, but I’m always amazed by it.”
Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Anna Schraeder at the City Manager’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 857-4750. Volunteers will be required to sign a liability waiver prior to assisting with the clean-up.
