About 800 volunteers are expected to pick up trash Sunday along Minnehaha Creek and the Chain of Lakes in Minneapolis.
The sixth annual event will meet at Hiawatha Park at 9 a.m. for registration, and volunteers with gloves and bags will board shuttle buses or make their own way to cleanup locations.
The Minnehaha Creek Watershed District sponsors the event, which officials said attracted 670 people in 2011 and collected more than 2 tons of trash, including a door, a bicycle and a TV.
District officials said this year's drop-off spots will include Pamela Park in Edina, Lynnhurst Park in Minneapolis, and two areas each at Lakes Calhoun, Harriet and Nokomis. Other volunteers will focus on the creek or will canoe between Chicago Avenue and Lake Hiawatha.
The event, co-sponsored by the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., will conclude with lunch at Lake Hiawatha Park, 46th Street and 28th Avenue S. in Minneapolis.
