The City of Newport News Virginia is inviting residents to take part in Clean and Green Newport News in celebration of Earth Day. Clean and Green Newport News is a citywide clean up initiative that encourages volunteers to hit the streets, pick up litter, and beautify their neighborhoods.
The Newport News Public Works Department is coordinating volunteer efforts and will provide the necessary cleanup supplies, including bags for both litter and recyclable materials along with printed information to help identify what items can be recycled.
Volunteers will fill bags with trash and recyclable items and leave them on a corner of their choice to be picked up by the Department of Public Works between April 21-24. A limited quantity of supplies will be available for volunteers on a first come, first served basis.
For more information and to register for Clean and Green Newport News, volunteers can visit the Department of Public Works website at www.nngov.com.
