WARWICK — The Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce annual townwide roadside cleanup begins this Friday, April 25, and continues through Sunday, April 27, with a variety of events and activities.

Warwick Valley School Superintendent Dr. Raymond Bryant, chairman of the Operation Clean Sweep Committee, will coordinate the event with Michael Johndrow, the chamber's executive director, and Warwick Valley High School student Julia Vargas.

Roadside registration and pickup

Various groups, clubs, and individuals take part by pre-registering their routes in order to ensure garbage pickup by DPW. (Please note that this is for roadside refuse, not homeowner garbage.)

Garbage bags and gloves will be available to anyone who registers and can be picked up at any time.
