Village Creek cleanup postponed

By WBRC staff

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The "Renew our Rivers" cleanup scheduled for Village Creek on Saturday has been postponed.

Alabama Power, in a statement to FOX6 News Friday afternoon, said weather conditions caused organizers to postpone the event originally scheduled for Saturday morning.

A reschedule date was not immediately set.

The fourth-annual "Renew our Rivers" cleanup at Village Creek was coordinated by the Village Creek Society with partnerships from the Birmingham Fire and Rescue Department, Birmingham Public Works Department, Vulcan Materials and Alabama Power. Since 2006, volunteers have removed more than 35 tons of trash from the creek.
