The City of Cedar Springs will be holding their fifth annual Earth Day cleanup on Saturday, April 28. The day starts at 8 a.m. with E-waste collection behind Cedar Springs city hall. Bring all your electronic waste for disposal such as computers, monitors, keyboards, cell phones, radios, stereos, laptops, VCRs, modems, power cords, etc. The trailer will be there until 3 p.m. This will be staffed by the Cedar Springs Rotary. No TVs or big box appliances will be accepted. Televisions may be brought to Comprenew at 629 Ionia SW in Grand Rapids for recycling. A fee will be charged per TV.
Then meet at 10 a.m. at the trail staging area on W. Maple Street (west off Main) to clean up Cedar Creek. Volunteers report to the staging area to receive their t-shirts and clean-up assignments. The first 100 registered get a free shirt. New this year is a limited number of track picks and waders for volunteers to borrow.
The days’ events will conclude with a City Surplus Auction beginning at 1:00 p.m. with excess City equipment to be auctioned off.
Visit the city’s website at www.cityofcedarsprings.org to download a registration form for the cleanup. Registration is not mandatory to participate, but it does help the city to pre-assign clean-up locations, and plan for the purchase of trash bags and t-shirts.
