The Facebook page Olympia Memes has organized Oly Clean in 2014, which runs all day Saturday. At least 21 teams of volunteers will clean up garbage and dirty syringes at sites around the city. To thank participants, the event culminates with a pizza party at 5 p.m. at Big Whisky Saloon, 425 Franklin St. SE.
Gloves and tools will be provided, and the Thurston County Syringe Exchange Program will supply containers for bio-hazardous materials. For a list of teams and locations, visit Olympia Memes on Facebook. To learn more about donations, email olympiamemes@hotmail. com.
