The City’s “Clean up Federal Way!” event scheduled for this Saturday has been postponed due to poor air quality in the Puget Sound region.
A super-massive body of wildfire smoke from fires in Oregon and California is on the move into Washington, and air quality is declining, according to the Washington State Department of Ecology.
Hosted by the City of Federal Way, the event planned to focus on cleaning up key areas throughout the city as well as various neighborhoods. A new date for the volunteer event has not yet been announced.
Litter Removal Day will mark the first official city-sponsored event associated with the 30 for 30 Initiative, where residents are encouraged to donate 30 minutes of volunteerism to celebrate Federal Way’s 30th birthday, according to the city.
“Keeping our city clean and litter-free for our residents and visitors alike is one of our top priorities,” said Mayor Jim Ferrell. “I’m honored to have my policy partners on the city council playing a key role in this event and sharing in our desire to maintain clean streets and parks. Through this event, we’re excited to be able to give residents a chance to volunteer and be a part of our 30 for 30 Initiative.”
Groups must pre-register for the future event by calling 253-350-7665 or by emailing Jeriemail@example.com.
