City seeks helping hands for cleanup

Main Street, Weir Avenue, Marland Heights Road are targeted for a little TLC

WEIRTON — The City of Weirton is hosting its second street cleanup of the year, and is seeking volunteers to lend a hand.

The inaugural Weirton Community Fall Street Cleanup will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Oct. 12. It is being organized by the City of Weirton, with support from West Virginia’s Adopt-A-Highway program.

Volunteers are asked to meet behind the Millsop Community Center at 8:30 a.m. the day of the cleanup to receive all cleanup materials and instructions.

To register, go to www.surveymonkey.com/r/H8LMR3B.

The website includes an accident waiver and release of liability, which must be signed in order to participate.

Those registering also will be asked to select a preference of work area for the cleanup, including Main Street, Marland Heights Road, Municipal Plaza and Weir Avenue.

Participants must be at least 12 years old, unless accompanied by an adult. Those under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign the registration form.

For more information, contact Francesca Basil, GIS coordinator for the city’s Planning and Development Department, at fbasil@cityofweirton.com.

The city held a similar cleanup in May, also focusing on areas of the city’s downtown.
