Largest community cleanup

YAKIMA, Wash.-- If downtown Yakima looks a little cleaner, it's for good reason. Nearly 100 people walked the streets and alleyways of downtown to make Yakima cleaner. A drop off gave people the chance to throw away their own personal junk. Volunteers threw away dozens of needles and dangerous waste from the alleyways.

"You walk into an empty yard and it's a disaster and when you leave, it looks really nice and it reflects on our community here," a Four Square Church volunteer said.

More community cleanups are planned for this year. They have been planned as a result of a citizens survey where locals hoped Yakima would be cleaned up.
