Volunteer for Adopt-A-Street Work Party May 14th

Our community council is in the City’s Adopt-A-Street program.  We’ve adopted these streets for occasional litter pickup:

  • Pinehurst Way NE – from Roosevelt Way NE to NE 125th St
  • NE 115th St – from 20th Ave NE to Pinehurst Way NE

Our next work party will be Saturday, May 14 at 10 a.m.  We’re looking for 6-8 volunteers. It takes about two hours. I’ve ordered grabbers, rubber gloves, safety vests, brooms and a sharps container.  If you are interested in helping, please email

This is a fun event – we work in pairs and have good laughs over some of the stuff we put in our garbage bags. And it’s always nice when a neighbor honks or gives us a thumbs-up for our efforts!

Our commitment is for four cleanup events a year, but volunteering for this event does NOT commit you to future work parties.

If you participate, you’ll sign a volunteer sign-in sheet that gives you insurance coverage during the event.  I’ll go over safety precautions with everyone before we start.

Information about the City’s program is at:

Come on and join the party, meet your neighbors and make a difference!

    We did it! Seven Pinehurst neighbors picked up three big bags of trash in two hours on a beautiful morning. Find of the day – a bunch of bullets in a baggie. Thanks to everyone who came out!

  • Nice! Sorry I couldn’t make it this time but hopefully I’ll be there for the next one. Well, as long as it’s not on the same day as my wedding this summer. ^_^
