The Benson Neighborhood Association's annual clean up is set for Saturday, May 6. That made us think - hey, why don't we encourage people to get a head start the night before?
So that's why we're hosting the first ever BFF Clean Up Challenge.
During the May 5 edition of BFF, we challenge all BFFers to fill a small bag with "micro trash" from the streets of Benson and get rewarded with gift cards! We're defining "micro trash" as stuff that's smaller than your fist - cigarette butts, candy wrappers, hair nets (yep, we've seen 'em occasionally blowing down Maple Street like tumbleweeds in the Old West), plastic cups and anything else that fits in your bag.
You can pick up your trash bag at the BFF Artist Market on Military Avenue, then return there when you're done filling it. Questions? Ask the fine folks at the artist market. See you on the street.
Our Newsroom editors are current interns of BFF - most are students at UNO.
