Volunteers will be out collecting trash along provincial highways this weekend.

On Saturday, May 4th, volunteers will put on orange safety vests and collect garbage from the side of highways from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

These volunteers are from 4-H clubs, Scouts, Girl Guides, schools, church organizations, Rotary clubs, sports teams, and other non-profit organizations.

"On May 4th, join us in keeping Alberta’s highways clean and safe for everyone. Together, we can make a difference in our communities. I want to thank all the volunteers for participating in this year’s annual highway cleanup," said the Minister of Transportation and Economic Corridors Devin Dreeshen.

Drivers are reminded to slow down as they pass the cleanup crews and obey all signs while watching for pedestrians.

Some highways, though, may get their trash collected later due to wildfire activity or if there's bad weather for the area this weekend.
