Saturday was a good day for some spring cleaning as residents from across Chicago volunteered to clean and beautify their communities.Mayor Daley was on hand at the Clean and Green event at 79th Street and South Greenwood.

The Department of Streets and Sanitation provided the shovels, brooms, and trash bags for the volunteers.

The city estimates more than 12,000 people gave up part of their weekend to help the clean-up effort.
