Duluth City leaders participate in clean-up

DULUTH, MN –Some areas around Duluth just got a whole lot cleaner.

Tuesday morning, city workers spent a couple of hours clearing out public areas of trash, abandoned items, and possibly used needles.

Participants met at Lincoln Park Middle school where they suited up and visited two locations – one at Restormel Street, and the other at 6th Avenue West.

“With kids using the trails and this area, we want to make sure there are no accidental needle sticks in the area,” said Sgt. Kelly Greenwalt with the Duluth Police Dept.

This effort is put on every year.

Anyone who discovers sharps and are not comfortable handling them can call the city’s sharps hotline at 218-730-4001. Calls will be answered 24/7 and a volunteer will respond to the location.
