All volunteers should come to the Wallkill Public Library on Saturday April 23 at 9 a.m. (rain date Sunday April 24) to pick up orange trash bags for the trash collected and note the streets or roadways you will be cleaning. Kayakers and boaters are needed to help remove debris from the river. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own work gloves, wear boots or sturdy shoes and dress for the weather.
