Earth Month Neighborhood Cleanup
Restore our Earth
April 17th to May 31st, 2021
Volunteer Event registration
This year, the 51st Annual Earth Day can be celebrated for a whole month—from home! Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, hosting traditional cleanup with large gatherings of volunteers is still not safe. Join us this year for a virtual Earth Day Event: webinars, videos, interviews and a month-long neighborhood volunteer cleanup event.
Be one of the first 100 participants to register and you will receive a mini Volunteer Toolkit! These kits are designed to help you have a safe and fun cleanup. They include a EBRPD reusable face mask, 1-ounce hand sanitizer, disposable gloves, and a handy guide to have a safe cleanup.
Honor the spirit of Earth Day while staying close to home and following public health guidelines. Trash in the streets turns to trash in our parks and wild lands, and cleaning neighborhoods provides a valuable service to our communities!
Here is what you need to do to have a successful Neighborhood Cleanup Event:
- Register for the event HERE
- Look through our Safety Guidelines [PDF]
- Assemble your own cleanup gear!
• Trash bags or buckets
• Face mask
• A trash grabber or tongs
• Sun protection and appropriate clothing
• Close-toed shoes
- Pick any day from April 17nd to May 31st, to head out into your neighborhood and pick up trash! Remember, you are our most important resource: safety first!
- Throw any debris collected into your home trash bin
- Dispose of your gloves and thoroughly wash your hands
- Take the simple survey and log your hours
- Post your pics on Social Media with the hashtags: #ebrpd and #earthmonth2021
- Don’t forget to have fun!
Thank you for extending your care and compassion to our communities and helping our shorelines! Stay healthy and safe.
