Earth Day is coming up, and there's a way for you to help keep our part of the planet clean this weekend in New Bedford.

Operation Clean Sweep is back up and running for its 12th season in New Bedford. The anti-littering organization is hosting a Ward 2 cleanup on Saturday from 8:30 am to Noon and are looking for volunteers to help out.  Refreshments will be provided to all who want to donate their time and clean up Ward 2! Everyone is invited to get involved and volunteer.

The volunteers will meet in the city parking lot between Sawyer and Beetle streets. If you're looking to volunteer you can go here and pre-register or call 508-979-1493. Pre-registration isn't a volunteer requirement but it is encouraged.
