REMINDER: Volunteers are bing asked to show up and help ‘Clean Up Burien’ this Saturday, March 18, from 9 â€“ 11 a.m.
Volunteers are needed to help clean up the city, and are asked to meet at 9 a.m. at Town Square Park near City Hall, located at SW 152nd Street and 5th Place SW.
“I am hoping to make this a monthly, or at the very least, a bi-monthly event,” Organizer Christine Lopez told The B-Town Blog. “I was reading so many Facebook posts from people complaining about the problems in our town, everyone wanting ‘they’ or ‘them’ to fix things and really ‘we’ can all pitch in and do something, even if it is as simple as picking up the trash.”
Picking up trash is one small thing we can all do to help our community, all it costs is your time. We’ll be meeting at Town Square Park, this will also be our starting point. Garbage bags, rubber gloves and some trash pickers will be available (If you want a trash picker of your own, the dollar store has them). Please feel free to bring your own supplies as well.
Since we will be picking up trash you need to be aware there are dangers of sharp objects, i.e. glass, needles, etc. Containers will be provider for disposal of any sharp objects you may find. If you are bringing your children, please make sure you supervise them.
The event will happen rain or shine.

NOTE: This new event is not affiliated with Discover Burien’s “Clean Sweep,” which is usually held on/around Earth Day, which this year falls on Saturday, April 22.
