The Fort Saskatchewan Girl Guides helped other local groups clean roughly 15 kilometres of highway.
The group got the chance to clean up the roads after another group withdrew from the activity on Saturday (May 4).
"We had two groups working the highway cleaning and for the girls to raise funds for their trip to the east cost in July 2019. It was a lot of fun," said Fort Saskatchewan Brownie's contact guider, Meghan Pollard.
Girl Guides cleaned sections of Hwy 28A and Hwy 37 as well as a section near Tofield with the Pathfinders and Rangers.
"I found an entire hitch assembly off one of the big trucks, 17 hub caps, crib mattresses, Tim Horton's coffee cups in ridiculous amounts as well as well as the typical cans and bottles and that kind of stuff," said Pollard.
There were 11 volunteers in total.
"The main goal of girl guiding is to have a community connection, so we try to get girls out into the community and giving back in as many ways as possible, by doing as much as they can hands on. Highway clean up is a really good way to give back to our community," added Pollard.
The Girl Guides need to fundraise $3000 for their trip.
