Glendale volunteers unite for post-Halloween trash clean-up

Going all out on candy and Halloween decorations may earn a neighborhood street cred among trick-or-treaters, but it can also mean trash -- lots of it.

It's a problem that Northwest Glendale -- long a popular draw for hundreds of children on Halloween -- has been grappling with for years. So today, dozens of volunteers are scheduled to converge on the neighborhood today for the second consecutive year to comb streets for candy wrappers and other trash.

Organized by the city's Neighborhood Services Division, the clean-up includes volunteer groups from Hoover High, Toll Middle and Keppel Elementary schools.

The event is slated to kick-off at 3:30 p.m. today at the corner of Kenneth Road and Sonora Avenue.


At Tobinworld, Halloween is a favorite holiday
