The snow that was on ground in Dickinson about two weeks ago is gone thanks to warmer temperatures, but the trash that was underneath it still remains.
Hopefully it will be gone soon too, because the Dickinson Fire Department is holding its annual Spring Clean Up Event.
The event kicked off today, and Dickinson Fire Marshal, Mark Selle, said 11 local groups from boy and girl scout troops to local businesses are volunteering their time.
He also said another eight groups in the city are helping through Adopt a Roadway projects.
The groups are cleaning up about 20 miles worth of roadways surrounded by parks, baseball fields, and recreational areas people use for Summertime activities.
Selle said the event not only beautifies the community, but it also keeps it safe.
“It helps lower the fire danger. Debris that builds up can really be a fire hazard, so want to get things cleaned as fast as possible”.
The Spring Clean Up will end on May 12, and anyone interested in volunteering can contact the Dickinson Fire Department: Mark Selle, 701-456-7820, email@example.com
Selle also said that trash bags for the project can be picked up at the Public Safety Center, Chamber of Commerce, and the West River Recreational Center,
