This year’s annual Webster City city-wide clean-up and drop-off event had an astounding turnout. According to Mayor John Hawkins, 13 full bins of garbage were collected and eight full bins of scrap metal were collected.

Volunteers spent Friday and Saturday unloading trucks, sorting materials and assisting individuals with their pick-up needs.

“It was a community effort,” said Hawkins.

Volunteers of all ages braved the heat to help clean up the city and help out their neighbor.

The Webster City High School wrestling team volunteered their time on Saturday to raise money for an upcoming camp. Through free-will donations, the team raised $1,400 to go towards the camp.

Hawkins thanked the community for their support and effort to help clean up Webster City.

“I’d like to thank the volunteers, trash processors, wrestlers and residents for their time and support,” Hawkins said.
