The city is asking residents to part of the “Great American Cleanup” event May 17. Participants are asked to register at ww.cityoffortwayne.org/greatamericancleanup or by calling 311 no later than April 18. Pre-registration allows the city to ccommodate volunteers with event tee-shirts, gloves and trash bags.

Last year more than 190,000 pounds of litter and debris were collected from Fort Wayne’s neighborhoods, parks, roadways, trails and riverbanks. The event is the country’s largest beautification and community improvement effort. Nationwide, there were more than 4 million volunteers last year. Fort Wayne’s clean-up efforts focus on neighborhoods, vacant lots, trails and greenways, graffiti removal, streets and roads, and rivers.
