EDMONTON, Alta. — Alberta’s Annual Highway Clean-up Day is slated for May 3, and drivers are being urged to use caution as thousands of young people will be along the sides of the province’s roads.
“On Highway Clean-up Day, signs will be posted along highways informing motorists that they are entering clean-up areas,” says Ed Stelmach, Minister of Transportation. “For the safety of the participants, please slow down, obey signs and stay alert.”
Youth groups and other non-profit groups will be cleaning the highways from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Last year more than 7,500 participants cleaned up more than 27,000 bags of trash from the ditches. A rain date has been scheduled for May 10, should the weather prohibit cleaning on the originally scheduled date.
