Members of the Edison neighborhood will be out Saturday, cleaning up their streets.

Residents who live or own property or businesses between South 56th to 66th and South Oakes to Washington streets are invited to participate.

Volunteers will met at Edison Elementary School, 5830 S. Pine St., at 10 a.m. Saturday. The cleanup is scheduled to last until 2 p.m.

They’ll be looking for trash, televisions, yard waste, blackberry bushes, appliances, tires and metals.

LeMay Mobile Shredding will be on-site to shred documents. There’s a limit of up to three grocery bags full of said documents per household or business.

The community clean up is part of the city’s community-based services program. The Edison neighborhood is one of the original four service areas.
