We all despise roadside trash - and here’s your chance to join other local volunteers for a Highway 60 cleanup on Saturday morning, Jan. 30.
“Calling all volunteers,” wrote Michelle from Globe Clean and Beautiful. “We’ll meet at the UPS parking lot at 8 a.m. and work until 10 a.m., picking up trash all along Highway 60 from the Circle K back west to the Taco Bell. Please wear gloves and bring your used grocery bags or other shopping bags to fill up with trash. Bring your masks, too; and we’re covering a large enough area that we can all spread out and maintain proper social distance, while pitching in together to help clean up our city.”
Prior events beautified Highway 60 near Hilltop Motors last month and sections of Pinal Creek in November. Organizers plan to continue monthly cleanups across the Cobre Valley throughout 2021.

Partners in the cleanup include the Cathy Sanchez-Cañez Memorial Foundation, Capstone, US Forest Service, Gila Proud, Cobre Valley Watershed Partnership, Globe High School, City of Globe and Hunter & Hunter Construction.
