Show how much you love your city by picking up trash this Sunday.
The streets of downtown Milledgeville will soon be swept clean.
"It's coming up because our Deep Roots festival is in about four weeks now. It's perfect timing to get our downtown in tip-top shape," says Carlee Schulte, the Executive Director of Milledgeville Main Street.
Volunteers get your brooms ready for this Sunday. Milledgeville Main Street will host a Clean-Up Day that will last from 2-5 p.m.
The town looks clean and pristine, but there are some eyesores nestled in some cracks and crevices inbetween buildings.
Alleyways are considered an urban trash can. It's an easy place for people to throw away their litter. These are the types of places that volunteers will target.
"I think it's great for the people in the community to get out and make the city more beautiful so we can all appreciate it more," says seven year Milledgeville resident Donna Ivey.
"We'll have rakes and shovels and stuff like that. We ask that people bring gloves and wear your work clothes and be ready to get dirty," says Schulte.
A Milledgeville resident of 51-years, Jeffrey Harrington has seen the town's messier moments.
"Just after some of the festivals that we have and after a Thursday night party by the college kids. But other than that it's very clean," he says.
Volunteers are asked to meet at the Milledgeville Main Street office at 127 East Hancock Street.
And the Deep Roots festival which brings music, barbecue and classic cars to the city's downtown happens October 20th.
