A new organization, JustServe, is bringing Gillette and Campbell County residents together to help keep the city streets and county roads clean for the community to enjoy.
One of the group’s first events, a Community Cleanup, is taking place this Friday and Saturday at the North Landfill and Airport roads north of town off Highway 14-16, according to Angi Klamm, local JustServe communications director and City of Gillette Parks and Beautification Board member, who’s helping to organize the event.
“This a great opportunity to give back to the community and it just takes a few hours to make a big difference,” Klamm said.
Community members can serve by picking up roadside litter at either of these two locations on Friday, April 30, from 5 to 7 p.m. and on Saturday, May 1, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Twenty volunteers have already registered online but they’re hoping more will sign up to lend a hand.
“We have big a goal to get 50 people at each location (on) both days! So, get all of your friends to come along!” Klamm said. “Due to roads we’ll be working on, all who come need to be 11 or older.”
Those aged 11 and up can register online at JustServe.org or simply show up Friday and Saturday to help.
The County is providing gloves, trash bags, safety vests, and water, Klamm said. Registration is free and helps the County know what supplies are needed.
This event is being held in conjunction with the City’s annual Trash-a-Thon, Klamm said.
