2013 Great American Cleanup
Thank you to all those who participated in the spring Great American Cleanup. Over 3,000 volunteers cleaned up 30 plus tons of trash from Rockland’s streets, parks and waterways.
Please remember to return any grabbers you may still have!

Ways to Volunteer to Cleanup
Lead your own cleanup
Know of a neighborhood in need of a cleanup? Go out on your own or energize friends, family, colleagues or neighbors to join you. Then register your cleanup online. 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.
Participate in someone else’s cleanup
Prefer to volunteer to power someone else’s cleanup and give a crew the extra muscle needed to rid a neighborhood of trash? Just indicate your interest on your registration and we can help team you team up with a cleanup crew.
Engage in community service AND earn money for your school! With a School Bag-A-Thon, students collect pledges from family and friends before getting out to participate in the Great American Cleanup. The funds raised go back to support the school. The Bag-A-Thon is an opportunity to engage students in service-learning that raises awareness about the environment and the importance of civic engagement.
