Green Birds plan cleanup for downtown Anaheim for new year

Start the New Year right with a Green Bird cleanup.

It’s almost the New Year and time to do something merry and bright – like cleaning up the neighborhood. The first annual Jingle Bell cleanup will be Saturday, Dec. 30, in Downtown Anaheim. Metal litter tongs will be decorated with clusters of noisy silver-and-green sleigh bells creating a wonderful New Year noise.

Meet at the giant Christmas tree on Center Street Promenade (at Clementine Street in front of Anaheim Ice) at 10 a.m. Bring friends and family. Everyone from every neighborhood is welcome.

For safety, kids must be supervised by their adults. Green Bird Anaheim supplies everything you need to help clean up. For more information contact Kevin Kidney, team leader for Green Bird Anaheim, at
