The 46th annual highway cleanup will take place tomorrow, Saturday, May 7th.
Between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., volunteers wearing bright orange safety vests will be collecting trash along highways in Central Alberta to raise funds for community organizations.
Motorists are advised to watch for the volunteers, slow down, obey signs and use caution when passing cleanup crews.
The organizations, which include 4-H clubs, Scouts, Girl Guides, schools, church organizations and other non-profit groups, earn $100 per kilometre cleaned.
The Alberta RCMP asks motorists to slow down in marked cleanup areas and to be aware of the added foot-traffic. The RCMP will also increase patrols across provincial highways to enforce traffic safety and prevent speeding in these areas.
