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.
