At least 40 volunteers are participating in the cleanup.  The area being covered Saturday extends from East Broadway north to the railroad tracks and from South Center Avenue to Marshall Street.  More cleanups will be held in different areas of town, until the entire city has been covered by the end of March next year.

Debris, limbs, and even large furniture can be placed at the curb for pickup.

Press Release from the City of Sedalia

 This Saturday, April 20th, the Citizens for A Clean Sedalia Committee will hold its first free neighborhood clean-up event. The south boundary of the area receiving this service is East Broadway. It extends northward to the railroad tracks. The western and eastern boundaries are South Center Ave. and Marshall Street.

By 7:00 AM this Saturday morning, citizens living in this area are requested to have at their front curb, the trash and debris they want discarded. The only exceptions to this are the homes on East Broadway extending from South Center Ave. to Marshall Street. In those cases, the East Broadway homes need to place the debris in the alley in the back of their homes.
