The Great American Cleanup encourages communities to improve themselves in many different ways.Traditional cleanups are always a great option, but you might also consider one of the following projects:
- Solid Waste Collection Event (drop off for recycling, yard waste, chemicals, electronics, etc.)
- Facility Spruce Up (graffiti removal, park spruce up, community center spruce up, etc.)
- Beautification project (plant trees, landscaping, mulching, etc.)
- Community Education Fair (booths, activities, presentations, etc.)
- Earth Day Event – April 22, 2019
- Arbor Day Event – April 26, 2019
Whatever your community comes up with, you will be joining millions of fellow Americans to improve our nation, one community at a time. Happy Spring Cleaning!
