PHOTOS: Scenes from Discover Burien’s annual ‘Clean Sweep’ on Saturday
Dozens of volunteers got up bright and early Saturday morning to help brighten downtown Burien during Discover Burien’s annual ‘Clean Sweep,’ which started at 8 a.m. at the Fire Station.
BTB Founder/Publisher Scott Schaefer got his hands dirty (okay he wore gloves and took pics) at the event – which goes until 1 p.m. – and took these photos (click images to see larger versions/slideshow):
If you’re reading this before 1 p.m. Saturday, you can still help – just show up at the Burien Fire Station on 8th Ave SW before then!
You can also shred financial and other confidential paperwork at a great price while supporting local charities during HomeTask’s Shred Day event, which goes until 6 p.m. at their office at 611 SW 152nd Street. Suggested donation for shredding the first box is just $10, and $5 for each additional box, compared to typical fees of around $35 for a regular box.
All proceeds from Shred Day go to local nonprofits, and some of them will be at the event. Boxes of paperwork can be left at HomeTask before the shredding truck arrives..
Volunteers will be rewarded for their efforts with breakfast, lunch and a chance to win prizes. Clean Sweep is presented by the city of Burien and the Discover Burien Association. Waste Management is the event’s primary sponsor.
