Residents can now sign up to help pick up litter around town at this year’s City of Stillwater Trash-Off event Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m.to noon.

“This is a great service opportunity for our community,” Environmental Programs Manager Chris Franks said. “We have lots of families, students, neighborhoods and church groups who team up to help keep Stillwater clean. It’s also a chance to get verified service hours.”

Volunteers should RSVP with the number in their party by April 21 to make preparations for each group. Individuals are also welcome to participate.

Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. at the City of Stillwater Community Center, 315 W. 8th Ave. An award will be presented to the group that collects the most trash.

Hot dogs and drinks will be served at noon.
