Volunteers Needed for St. Patrick's Parade Day Cleanup

Merchants along entire parade route asked to pitch in.

The city is looking for volunteers to help clean up after the St. Patrick's Day parade.

For years, the Brick Alley Pub has organized a cleanup and this year, the Newport Energy and Environment Commission is hoping to expand on it and extend the cleanup to cover the entire parade route, which runs from the Police Station and ends at Rogers High School.

According to a release, merchants all along the parade route are being sought to join a volunteer clean-up effort on Sunday morning, March 16th at 9 a.m.

Volunteer teams will be given bags for collecting litter. Clean recyclables will be collected separately so they can be recycled rather than thrown away.

To volunteer to clean up outside your business, please call Kristin Littlefield at 845-5642 or send her an email at klittlefield@cityofnewport.com.

Let those who litter pay the cost, if Newport had a real police station with real cops than no one would litter in the first place, I lived in many cities in RI but never seen one so foreign as here, Newport should adopt the Pay the fine now to all non-newporties it works in France and it will work here, in France they issue on-the-spot fines to all non residents.

Don't forget how great the Italian justice system is.....just ask Amanda Knox, if you like it better somewhere else then go there

Amanda Knox was guilty as sin but people can not believe a cute american girl could be a monster. That was the same thinking that got Lizzie Bordon off.
