LETHBRIDGE, AB – Watch for volunteers in bright orange vests collecting trash from area highways Saturday (May 1).

It’s Alberta’s 45th annual highway clean-up.

Organizations like 4H clubs, Scouts, Girl Guides, schools, churches and other non-profit groups earn $100 for every kilometre cleaned.

Last year the province paid just over $925,000 to volunteer organizations involved in the highway clean-up.

If you’re out and about on local highways Saturday slow down, obey signs and use caution when passing the volunteers.
