In honor of Earth Day, employees of the Hilton in Issaquah worked together to pick up litter to help keep the town clean. The efforts were part of a citywide Spring Clean Up for Issaquah, according to a press release from Hilton. Employees from all departments suited up in boots, gloves and orange safety vests. “Team Issaquah” worked its way through the rain and mud to fill 15 trash bags.
Several other individuals and groups in Issaquah were a big part of the Spring Clean Up on April 20, including Kiwanis Club of Issaquah, Downtown Issaquah Association, CleanScapes, Tavon Center, Friends of Youth, Bellevue College, Drug Free Community Coalition and the Boy Scouts.
This year, the beautification party concentrated on areas south of Interstate 90.
