GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The West Michigan Environmental Action Council is looking for volunteers to help clean up the community.

The 19th annual Mayors’ Grand River Cleanup is a weeklong campaign that will start on Sept. 10 with a kickoff celebration on the Gillett Bridge, across from Gerald R. Ford Museum. Mayors from Grand Rapids, Grandville, Kentwood and other communities will take part. There will also be lunch and a beer garden.

Groups of five or more can sign up to adopt a site to clean — on their own schedule — any time the following week. WMEAC will provide cleanup materials.
