Our highways are free of garbage now and it's all thanks to the Drumheller Cadets.
The Drumheller Cadets cleaned 16 kilometres of roadside ditch from the bottom of the North Hill all the way up Highway 56.
"It went great, everyone had a lot of fun. The turnout you get is very good, the Cadets just enjoy helping out and it's a great fundraiser for us," stated spokesman Liz Mundell.
Usually each year the Drumheller Cadets earn around $1,600 for the Highway cleanup.
"It's based upon the kilometres that you do. Kilometres that are closer to town you tend to get more money because there is more garbage and if you do a kilometre further out you get a little less money," Mundell explained.
So, did anyone find any interesting garbage?
"One kid was very impressed: he found 40 cents in Canadian Tire money. I didn't find any money, but I did find pretty much a full outfit. There was some shirts and some pants, it was very interesting," concluded Mundell.
