Clean-up events organized for ND oil patch towns

BISMARCK — The North Dakota Petroleum Council’s “Pick Up the Patch” campaign is under way in several communities and will run throughout May.

The effort is aimed at cleaning up garbage that’s littering the oil patch in western North Dakota.

The Petroleum Council started the clean-up campaign in 2012 after complaints about the growing trash problem spurred by the oil boom.
