NEW CASTLE — The Wampum Chapter of the North Country Trail Association will be joining tomorrow’s Great American Cleanup.

Members and friends will gather at 8 a.m. at the Bevington Boat Launch on River Road in Wayne Township. They will conduct a roadside trash cleanup along River Road near the Wampum Bridge.

The group plans to work until noon on the Earth Day weekend project organized by Keep America Beautiful. Bags, gloves and safety equipment will be provided to the volunteers.

The local and state sponsors for the trail group’s cleanup are Wayne Township, the Pennsylvania departments of transportation and environmental protection and the Pennsylvania Waste Industries Association.

Have you held or will you hold a garage/yard sale this year?
