Refresh The Rims Day

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Students from Montana State University Billings woke up early this morning to keep the Magic City clean.

Organizers are calling it Refresh the Rims day. The project is a collaborative effort between MSU-B and the Billings Parks and Recreation Department. Planners say the community effort is a way of keeping Billings' iconic rims looking beautiful.

"We use the rims, we recreate on the rims all the time, and there's so much trash, there's nothing picked up. We just really want to clean up the area that we love and that we use," says event organizer, Kayla Brown.

Refresh the Rims started at 9:00 AM Saturday, and finished at noon. Planners say eight groups stayed busy covering a four-mile area.
