Kuna Clean-Up Day is today

If you see a weekly newspaper editor in a Scout leader uniform carrying a garbage bag and cleaning up the alley between Fourth Street and Main Street, that would be me.
The annual Kuna Clean-Up Project is taking place today, Saturday, April 23, throughout the city of Kuna.
There will be free curbside trash removal provided by J&M Sanitation for businesses and residents (placed at curbside by 8 a.m. on April 23) within the boundaries of Hubbard Road, King Road, and Ten Mile Road and Meridian Road.
No tree limbs, brush or large wood items will be taken on Clean-Up Day this year. These items can be placed on the curb for weekly regular pick-up throughout the year. Please make sure they are bundled and no longer than 4 feet.
Televisions and computer monitors will be accepted.
