Join the 2015 Great American Cleanup…Today!
Help remove tons of litter from our streets, parks and waterways to make our communities cleaner, healthier and more beautiful. In 2014, over 3,500 volunteers throughout the county participated in the Great American Cleanup (GAC), an event that brings out over 4 million volunteers nationwide. Be a part of the 2015 campaign!
3 Great Ways to Volunteer
1. Lead a Cleanup
Know of a neighborhood in need of a cleanup? Get out on your own or energize friends, family, colleagues or neighbors to join you. Then REGISTER your cleanup site online (Choose: Schedule a Cleanup – any time, any place on the form). You can choose any date in April or May that works for you. KRB will provide you with free trash bags, a GAC t-shirt and reusable tote bag. We have litter grabbers available for sale or loan. Scout badges are available for a small donation.
2. Join a Group to Clean Up
You may also choose to participate in someone else’s cleanup – indicate your interest on your registration and we can help team you up with a cleanup crew. If you and your team need help selecting a cleanup site, let us know.
3. Join a Community Cleanup
Take part in a larger Community Cleanup Event scheduled in your area. These events are a great opportunity to meet neighbors, share stories, and enjoy refreshments before/after heading out to your chosen site. When you register online, simply indicate your wish to join a Community Cleanup Event. Cleanup supplies will be distributed at all of these events. Here’s what’s currently scheduled…more coming!

Grabbers Ready, Kids!
Cleanups are a great way for kids to earn community service hours and learn about the world around them. Even littler ones – there are loads of kid-friendly sites that they can help with. Just ask your Community Cleanup Leader for advice. They are there to help ensure a safe and enjoyable cleanup experience. KRB will happily provide Community Service documentation.
Where is KiRBy?
Cleanup KiRBy, our mascot, does not like trash and will be popping up at littered sites throughout the county. Be on the lookout for him – and return him for a prize!!
