2019 Litter Dash Wrap-Up
The City of Sioux City would like to thank all businesses and residents that volunteered for our second annual Litter Dash community litter cleanup. The event was a big success! Over 1,100 volunteers went out into the community and picked up 1.93 tons, or 3,860 lbs., of litter from City streets, trails, and parks. That’s an additional 260 pounds of litter over the 2018 event.
