SUPER SWEEPER SATURDAY
Program kicks off Anchorage Chamber Citywide Cleanup Week
WHO: Anchorage Chamber of Commerce/ Anchorage School District
WHAT: Super Sweeper Saturday
The Anchorage Chamber of Commerce and Anchorage School District will again kick off its annual Anchorage Chamber Citywide Cleanup Week, May 12 to 19, by partnering with K-12 schools in its "Super Sweeper" program, held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on May 12 throughout Anchorage.
Now in its 44th year, the "Super Sweeper" program challenges students from more than 80 elementary, middle, private and high schools to pick up trash with their families around their schools and neighborhoods.
A complete list of participating schools is available online at Anchoragechamber.org.
One student from each participating school will receive an iPod Shuffle® for their efforts, courtesy of Princess Tours.
Residents also picking up trash on Super Sweeper Saturday can drop their filled orange trash bags off at any participating school before 2 p.m. for pick up. This is the only time during Citywide Cleanup Week that trash will be picked up. Otherwise, orange bags can be delivered to the Anchorage Regional Landfill, Central Transfer Station, or Girdwood Transfer Station during Citywide Cleanup Week for free.
