The event will be held Saturday Feb. 5 from 9 to 11 a.m., starting at Meadow Creek Park on Vista Grande Drive in Antioch (behind Carmen Dragon Elementary School). Organizers will provide bags, gloves and other supplies; only volunteers are needed.
Although not required to participate, pick-up trucks are helpful, and donations of additional trash bags are welcome.
The Clean-up is an extension of the events formerly hosted by the Antioch Police Department, which has discontinued participation due to the city’s budgetary problems. The effort is now being continued by private citizens, dozens of whom pitched in during the previous event.
