Saturday, May second's beautiful weather added to the enthusiasm of the many volunteers who took part in Oakland Township’s 46th annual Clean Scene. Each year residents help to clean township roads of the debris uncovered when winter’s snow carpet finally melts. Organized by Trustee Bailey, the event begins with registration, bag pick up and coffee at the Township Hall. Volunteers spread out to assigned roads for trash collection. Filled bags are left on the side of the road and other volunteers drive their personal vehicles to carry the bags back to the trash compactor waiting in the Township Hall parking lot.

After gathering trash for several hours, all the volunteers gather for lunch and camaraderie back at Town Hall. Residents who were unable to attend this year’s event can do their part by keeping the roadside along their own property clear of debris. Remember to take a plastic bag along for spring and summer walks and collect the trash tossed by careless motorists.

Mark your 2016 calendar for the first Saturday of May and help your fellow residents keep our township beautiful!

Anyone can volunteer. Youth and scout groups are welcome and can earn community service credits. Please wear hard soled shoes, work gloves and clothes appropriate for the weather conditions. Clean Scene is a rain or shine event. 

Get involved, gather your groups, friends, and co-workers to improve the appearance of township roads, and get to know your neighbors.
