XStream Cleanup Starts New Schedule

An annual one-day, environmental clean-up event in the Quad Cities will not be held this summer. Instead, the XStream Cleanup will sponsor several smaller events with volunteers picking up garbage and debris. 

The next event will be on June 18th. XStream Cleanup volunteers will work with the Eagle View Group of the Sierra Club to clean a section of Ben Butterworth Parkway in Moline. Organizer Brandy Welvaert says clearing bigger messes, more often, gives volunteers a more satisfying experience. 
The new schedule is more flexible, allowing more people to participate at various times throughout the year. 

XStream Cleanup is recruiting volunteers and Welvaert says it's a chance to have fun while keeping the Quad Cities beautiful. 

"There's really nothing like walking into a natural area..."

A full schedule of events and volunteer opportunities is available at www.XStreamcleanup.org.
