Schedule & What To Expect:

We will all gather by the designated meet-up point to go over all the information and route details before we kick-off. We will be handing out the buckets and bags as well.
9:30am - 10:45am | Service The Area
We will kick off the cleanup by following the designated route and servicing the area for trash, recyclables, and debris. (Around 1-3 miles)
11:30am - 12pm | Collect Trash & Sort
After we service the area we then head back and weigh the collected trash. From there we dump it out onto a tarp and sort through the materials looking for the items, such as glass, plastics, bottle caps, or cigarette butts so they are to be disposed of properly.
