NORWAY — The organizer of a downtown cleanup effort that will take place this weekend is seeking volunteers.
The trash removal will begin at 8 a.m. on Saturday. Volunteers will meet at the parking lot of Aubuchon Hardware, the parking lot of the Ripley Medical Building, Witherell Park next to Norway Savings Bank, the parking lot near L.F. Pike and Son, and the Norway Grange Hall to pick up trash bags. Art Gouin, former owner of L.F. Pike and Son and organizer of the event, said Hannaford has donated several clear plastic bags, which are required by the transfer station for disposal.
Each area corresponds to a certain section of town and will focus on picking up roadside garbage and debris. Those wishing to remove trash from Pennesseewassee Stream can pick up bags at the Grange Hall, and those who would like to clean Bird Brook can pick up bags at Witherell Park.
