Highway clean up this weekend, please drive safe!

4-H clubs, Junior Forest Rangers and other youth groups

The Alberta RCMP are asking motorists to be extra vigilant when traveling on provincial roads this weekend while the annual highway clean up takes place.

Each year, participants from 4-H clubs, Junior Forest Rangers and other youth groups in the province do their part to help the environment by collecting garbage and recyclable materials from ditches and roadways. This year, there are an estimated 12,000 participants, 8,000 of whom will be youths that will be working with Alberta Transportation to clean roadways all across the province.

The cleanup is scheduled to take place on May 5 and with warm weather in the forecast, RCMP are asking motorists to slow down, obey signs and be alert to help ensure the safety of the kids that will be out keeping Alberta clean.
