LANSING, Ill. (April 23, 2022) – Dozens of local residents were scattered across Lansing Saturday morning spending the beautiful day picking up trash.
Lansing’s annual Community Clean-up Day started at Fox Pointe were volunteers received their assignments around town. Locations included the highway overpass, stretches of Bernice Avenue, railroad crossing areas, stretches of 186th Street, Winterhoff Park, and others.
The largest group of the day was 30 students from Memorial Jr. High School, which was more than expected, said Lansing Clerk Vivian Payne, whose office organized the event.
After a couple hours of gathering litter from around town, volunteers met at Fox Pointe for a Village-sponsored lunch.
