Overview

Litter free is the way to be!

Goals of the Litter Bees

  • Reducing litter on our streets and public areas through community cleanup campaigns like the Great American Cleanup and Trash Dash
  • Reducing and eliminating graffiti
  • Encouraging individuals and organizations to reduce litter and protect the local watershed through the Adopt-a-Spot program

2024 Community Cleanup Schedule

Our monthly litter cleanups are the 1st Sunday of the month, March through December. Litter cleanups are a quick and easy way for you to perform watershed stewardship -- every piece of litter you pick up is a piece of litter that doesn't end up in our waterways!

Bring your gloves and wear comfortable walking shoes. We'll provide bags and safety gear.

 Other items you may want to bring:

  • trash grabber
  • water bottle
  • rake
  • sunscreen
  • wagon or wheelbarrow

 Kids 12 and under must be accompanied by a responsible adult. 13 and older must provide permission slip with parent/guardian contact information.
