Integrated Traffic Units and all RCMP detachments would like to remind motorists to slow down to ensure the safety of thousands of volunteers participating in this year’s Annual Highway Cleanup.
Each spring, thousands of volunteers help keep Alberta roadways clean while earning funds to support their non-profit organizations. This year’s Annual Highway Cleanup takes place on Saturday, May 2.
Youths and adults will be wearing orange safety vests when picking up garbage along highways across the province. Signs will be posted indicating where cleanup crews are working. In the event of inclement weather, the cleanup will take place on Saturday May 9.
