Application Approval - Once your application is approved by the litter control office, you will receive a welcome letter, a sign of recognition installed at your adopted location and a safety guide. We would like four cleanups a year, but require at least two.
Schedule the Cleanup - A week before your chosen cleanup date, notify the litter control office and they will prepare: Litter Grabbers, Gloves, Safety Vests and Orange Trash Bags for collection.
The Cleanup - Have fun, be safe and leave the filled orange trash bags in a safe and central location on your adopted area.
Return the Equipment - Drop off the supplies, along with your Cleanup Report Card and let us know how many bags we need to collect.
