Some of the trash collected at the Plainfield train station
this past Sunday. Saturdy's event is at West Front and Clinton.
Plainfield Councilor Barry Goode's "Operation Clean the Queen" takes place Saturday (October 1), from 9:00 AM to Noon, starting at West Front Street and Clinton Avenue.
Goode's aim is for the event -- and others to follow -- to foster community beautification and improve neighborhood relations. Residents of all ages are invited to participte in a sweep that will clean up trash and debris from the area surrounding this West End intersection.
The city's Division of Public Works will supply gloves, rakes, bags and free water to participants.
Queen City Pride (QCP), a newly forming group also dedicated to beautification and cleanup efforts, will take part in the Saturday event. (They will also continue their efforts around Plainfield's train stations with a sweep at Netherwood Station on Sundy, October 2, at 8:00 AM.)
