Roseway Cleanup coming June 1 (Updated with Location)

The hugely popular Roseway Cleanup will take place again this year, on Saturday, June
1, 2013 from 9am to 3pm.  The cleanup will be located at the Glenhaven Park, main parking lot at 82nd Ave and Siskiyou.  This is a great opportunity to clean out your garage and support your neighborhood at the same time! We accept many kinds of materials and do our best to recycle, resell, or donate as much as possible, though please note we cannot accept electronic items or hazardous waste such as paint cans.

In order to make this event a success, we need over 75 volunteers. The volunteer shifts are 3 hours long, and scheduled from 8am – 11am, 10:30am -1:30pm, and 1pm – 4pm. Shift leaders and volunteers are needed for: Yard Debris/Wood Waste; Metal; Bulky Waste; Greeters/Cashiers, Traffic Control, Plastics, You Price It, and Rebuilding Center. Along with helping your community, getting some exercise, and bonding with your neighbors, all volunteers also get to bring a load to the Cleanup for free, have first pick at the You Price It tent, and can enjoy drinks and snacks on us. Several volunteer spots still need to be filled from 8am to 4pm, particularly during the 1 pm to 4 pm shift.

To volunteer, please e-mail us at and let us know your top three preferences, in order, for the area and shift for which you would like to volunteer and whether you are willing to be a shift leader. Thank you and we hope to see you there!
