The province has issued a reminder to motorists that come tomorrow, volunteer groups will be cleaning up trash along provincial highways during the annual highway cleanup. 

"Between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., on May 4, volunteers in orange safety vests will be collecting trash along provincial highways. Drivers are reminded to slow down, obey signs, watch for pedestrians, and use caution when passing cleanup crews," the province stated.

Volunteers from 4-H clubs, Scouts, Girl Guides, schools, church organizations, Rotary clubs, sports teams, and other non-profit organizations will participate in the cleanup event. Locally, groups like Volunteer Airdrie are participating in the clean-up with their Rebellion Against Litter campaign

"Together, we can make a difference in our communities. I want to thank all the volunteers for participating in this year’s annual highway cleanup, said Devin Dreeshen, Minister of Transportation and Economic Corridors.

In some regions of the province with wildfire activity, or in the event of poor weather, some areas may complete the cleanup on May 11, or delay until later in the month.
