Downtown Litter Quick Picks
Downtown Partners and their Environment work group are looking to start a new trend! In an effort to do our part and keep our city clean, Downtown Partners want to start “Quick Pick-ups” where they work with the people and businesses in downtown to pick up litter around their spaces for a few minutes on a Friday every other week. It’s really just that simple. We will go out on the first and third Friday of each month.
There are 13 captains in downtown who will be helping to distribute information and supplies to the businesses around their block; Central Bank, Century 21 ProLink, City Hall, Downtown Partners, Sioux City Convention Center, F&M Bank, Great Southern Bank, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, Knoepfler Chevrolet, Long Line Family Rec Center, Prime Assisted Living, US Bank and Wells Fargo Bank.
Ragen Cote, Downtown Partners executive director states, “The Litter Dash is a successful city event that happens once a year. We’d like to take that concept and maintain the great appearance of downtown Sioux City. If everyone just took a few minutes to pick up around them, the impact would be impressive.”
After each Litter Quick Pick, groups are being asked to post a picture of their team on the Downtown Partners page so they can be eligible for future prizes by Downtown Partners.
Now it's your turn: PARTICIPATE in the #QuickPickSC, SHARE your pictures, and ENCOURAGE friends and co-workers to join the movement. Thanks for keeping Downtown Sioux City beautiful!
