YOU CAN HELP: Four weekend cleanups in West Seattle

That’s just part of what community volunteers picked up along West Marginal last weekend. Organizer Erik Bell sends word that four community cleanups are planned around West Seattle this weekend – including a return to West Marginal – and you’re invited to pitch in:


7-8 am Alki Cleanup (Statue of Liberty start)

10 am-12 pm Alki First Saturday Clean (2452 Alki Ave SW start)

10 am-12 pm Pop-Up Clean / SW Holden (24th & Holden start, family-friendly)


10 am-12 pm Marginal Way / Missing Link (Həʔapus Park start)

Equipment (and bags) provided, but if you have your own pickup stick/bucket, bring it!

    We could use a WSDOT cleanup crew on 509 at Southpark. So much litter in road shoulder and drainage ditches that go to Duwamish River. I haven’t seen it this bad since the 1970s.

      You’re not alone in thinking that way. Erik’s group is actively working to adopt a section of highway there and get it cleaned up. Check out his page for more info.

    I know I’m not imagining this but I distinctly remember a time when cities had clean up crews that dealt with parks and highway trash.

Sorry, comment time is over.
