Volunteers clean up city

About 50 people turned out Saturday to help clean up Cedar Creek and the surrounding area during the 4th annual Cedar Springs Earth Day celebration.

“All that reported back said that there wasn’t nearly as much trash this year as in previous years,” said City Manager Christine Burns. “I remember the first year we did this (2008), the dumpster was overflowing and we had trash stacked all around it. This year, the dumpster was about ¾ full…I’m glad we are making progress.”

Besides the cleanup, the city also did a drug take back, an e-waste collection, and held a city surplus auction.

  1. Our church was happy to be a part of the Earth Day cleanup again this year. We, too, noticed that there was much less trash along 17 Mile Road. It’s nice to see that Earth Day may be turning into more of a year-round awareness.
