Each spring for the past 14 years, these organizations and volunteers have gathered to pick up trash that collects year after year. According to Greg Moore of the Southern Idaho Off-Road Association, “We just couldn’t do this without the support of all of our sponsors, in particular, Cesco Equipment and Southern Idaho Solid Waste. The donated heavy equipment is indispensable for hauling out the huge volumes of trash, and the donated dumpsters enable us to clean this area year after year.”
Unfortunately, several areas within the Snake River Canyon Park continually receive hefty amounts of illegally dumped trash. These areas will be the focus of Saturday’s events, which will allow numerous volunteers the opportunity to take part in keeping their public lands clean, safe and beautiful. Volunteers for the cleanup should plan to dress in layers, wear sturdy shoes and bring gloves and sun block. The Southern Idaho Off-Road Association will provide pizza for lunch for volunteers.
Additional sponsors for the clean-up event include Columbia Electric, Western Waste Services, Western States CAT rental and Jim Bob’s Bakery. For additional information, please contact Greg Moore of the Southern Idaho Off-Road Association at (208) 539-2012.
