Moorhead Community Helps Take Out the Trash

Sorry, this video is no longer available

People are coming together to help keep the city of Moorhead a clean place to live.

They are assisting with the clean-up of litter along I-94.

KVRR’s Brittany Ford has the story.

People from Moorhead, MSUM and Police Youth Services board buses at city hall for a day of picking up trash.

Karen Wolf volunteered her time.

She says she enjoys helping out for the sense of community pride and the workout.

“The pride in knowing we have a nice community that everyone is going to help to make it a beautiful community and the exercise! What better way fresh air and exercise.”

“And it’s along this highway where volunteers in safety vest and hand gloves are helping make Moorhead a better place.”

What  Moorhead Public Works is trying to stress is that it’s a collaborative effort to keep the city clean.

“We can only do so much in public works and we need the extra help to do this it gives everyone an opportunity to make the place look better.”

They are also trying to encourage more volunteers to help with cleanup efforts.

No pre-registration is necessary.  You can check for the next clean up on the Moorhead Public Works website.

The cleanup area stretched from the Red River to 20th Street South of I-94 and took about four hours to complete.
