The fourth annual Puyallup River Cleanup, organized by the Tacoma chapter of Trout Unlimited, will be held May 12.
Volunteers are needed to help removed garbage and debris from 9 a.m.-noon that day. People who want to help should plan to meet at Johnny’s Bar & Grill, 1100 N. Meridian Ave., Puyallup, at the corner of River Road and Meridian, next to Fred Meyer.
Instructions, gloves and garbage bags will be provided. The event will take place rain or shine, so dress for the weather.
In 2011, volunteers removed more than 2 tons of garbage from the banks of the Puyallup, said Rosendo Guerrero, chapter president and organizer of the cleanup. Since it began four years ago, more than 250 people have removed more than 10 tons of cans, bottles, wrappers, bait boxes, and other refuse.
