The 1-1/2 miles of Sunset Boulevard that slices through Silver Lake has attracted a growing number of  high-end restaurants and bars  and fashionable shops  in recent years.  But a closer look also reveals plenty of litter and other trash. That’s why the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council is looking for volunteers to help clean up the boulevard in time for the holidays, with the first of two clean ups scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday. Dec. 1. What happens if it keeps raining?

“It might be more fun,” said Barbara Ringuette, one of the organizers of the Adopt A Street clean up.

Volunteers for Saturday’s clean, scheduled from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.,  will gather at Sunset and Parkman Avenue to pick up brooms, rakes and other supplies.  A second clean is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 8, with volunteers asking to show up Sunset and Lucile.

Depending on how many people volunteer, Ringuette said the plan is to hold another clean up to work to the east end of Sunset near Waterloo Street as well as other streets.  For more information, contact Ringuette at
