Clean Island Partners (CIP) invites the public to grab free trash bags from Island Heritage Trust and help clean up stretches of Route 15 and Sunset Road on June 23-25.
There are trash grabbers and bright orange T-shirts for sale at IHT (420 Sunset Road) to make the job easier and safer, according to a press release.
