PETERS­BURG — A city­wide “Block by Block” clean-up will take place on Satur­day, be­gin­ning at 8 a.m and go­ing un­til 12 p.m.

Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to bring their friends and fam­ily to help re­move trash, tame over­grown weeds and grass, and bag leaves at var­i­ous neigh­bor­hoods around the city.

Civic and so­cial groups, as well as busi­nesses and churches can adapt a street or cor­ri­dor in the city to be re­spon­si­ble for dur­ing the clean-up.

Each ward will have a dif­fer­ent check-in point, where vol­un­teers can get gloves and bags, and get as­signed a dif­fer­ent neigh­bor­hood.

A spe­cial cook­out will be held at Cameron Field af­ter the clean-up.
