The region hasn’t had its first winter snowstorm yet, but McCandless officials already have spring cleaning on their minds.

Volunteers are being recruited for a roadside cleanup from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 6.

Residents interested in participating can sign up by calling 412-364-0616 Ext. 118 or by sending an email to the town’s Environmental Advisory Committee at:

Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes, longsleeve shirts and long pants. Bags, gloves and supplies will be provided.

The cleanup crew will meet at 9:30 a.m. at town hall on Grubbs Road, where a continental breakfast will be served before work begins.

Volunteers who participated in the town’s fall roadside cleanup on Oct. 13 collected 110 bags of trash as well as an assortment of odds-and-ends including tires, a kitty litter tub, gardening pots, a car grill and hubcap and a 33 RPM vinyl record.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
