Let's face it. Bossier Parish needs a little spring cleaning and Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington is hoping you can help!

The Bossier Sheriff’s Office is partnering with Keep Bossier Beautiful to perform a clean sweep of Bossier Parish, and they are hoping we can all help. They're looking for volunteers around the parish to take part in the big cleanup day, "Operation Clean Sweep" on Saturday, April 17.

Sheriff Whittington says, “We are asking community leaders, Neighborhood Watch Groups, businesses, churches, clubs, organizations, school groups, and individuals to join us as we clean up the parish on the morning of April 17.” He adds, “You can start in your own neighborhood or subdivision to pick up trash and debris, or venture out to other areas that need cleaning.”

Groups can then bring their bagged trash to the Viking Drive Substation by 11:30 a.m. on April 17 and drop it into a large dumpster provided by Waste Connections, Inc. North Louisiana. You can then enjoy lunch with hamburgers and hot dogs and have group photos taken.

Volunteer cleanup groups and teams or individuals can register for the cleanup at www.KeepBossierBeautiful.com.

Volunteers will be given a cool “Operation Clean Sweep” T-shirt provided by Waste Connections and Friends of Bossier Parish Law Enforcement, Inc. The T-shirt, trash bags and disposable gloves will be available for registered volunteers to pick up at the Viking Drive Substation starting Wednesday, April 14 through noon on Friday, April 16. T-shirts are provided while supplies last, so go ahead and register quickly.

If you are unable to get your bagged trash to the substation, call (318) 458-8588 for assistance with pickup. Also, if you have further questions, contact Lynn Bryan at LBryan@KeepBossierBeautiful.com or (318) 525-2249.
