Each spring, NeighborWorks partners with Malmstrom airmen and hundreds of volunteers bag and dispose of trash throughout Cascade County. Over two weekends, this community wide cleanup effort picks up 15 to 20 tons of trash per year. In addition to fielding teams to walk much of the 56 miles of roadway in Great Falls, several two-man teams drive up and down in the historic areas of the town collecting and disposing of trash and old items from the alleys. Other sponsors are the city of Great Falls, Montana Waste Systems, the Chamber of Commerce and the Montana Department of Transportation. Before throwing your spring cleaning debris away, check if they are recyclable - a number of businesses and organizations accept materials to be recycled in Great Falls. For a list, click here.
