Event description: Xstream Cleanup, presented by Riverboat Development Authority, is seeking hundreds of volunteers to clean up over 30 waterways in the Quad Cities on Saturday, August 18 from 8:30 a.m. until noon. This event is in collaboration with nationally known, Quad City native Chad Pregracke and his Living Lands & Waters team. Cleanups will take place in Bettendorf, Davenport, LeClaire and Princeton, Iowa; East Moline, Milan, Moline, Rock Island, Arsenal Island and the Mississippi River, Illinois. Volunteers can choose to participate in either a light-duty or heavy-duty cleanup. The light-duty cleanups consist mainly of picking up litter, while the heavy-duty cleanups require lifting of tires and other illegally dumped items. Volunteers receive a free t-shirt and a light breakfast. They are invited to attend the after-event party Saturday evening at the Bier Stube, in Moline. No previous cleanup experience is necessary and supplies will be provided. A parent or guardian must accompany volunteers under the age of 18. Interested persons should register online at www.xstreamcleanup.org or call 468-4218 for more information.
