Registration is now open for the
2015 Great American Cleanup
Join the thousands of Rockland County residents who will remove tons of litter from our streets, parks and waterways and help 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! Details below.
Ways to Volunteer to Cleanup
Lead or participate in 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.
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.
Join in a Community Cleanup Event
You and your crew can take part in a larger cleanup event scheduled in your area. It’s a great opportunity to meet other cleanup teams in your community, share stories, and enjoy refreshments before or after heading out to your chosen site. When you register online, indicate your intention to join a Community Cleanup Event. Cleanup supplies will be distributed at these events.
There are several events already scheduled!
Airmont, Blauvelt (Spanish), Central Nyack (Spanish), Congers, Haverstraw (Spanish), Hillburn, Montebello, Nanuet, New City, Nyack, Pomona, Sloatsburg, Stony Point, Suffern, Valley Cottage, West Haverstraw (Spanish).
Join us at our Cleanup Wrap-Up Party scheduled for May 29!
Don’t see your Community on the list of Events? Interested in hosting?
These are terrific events where neighbors come together on the same day to gather supplies and tackle trash together. For information contact Galit Maayani our Cleanup Coordinator, email@example.com or call (845) 708-9164
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!!
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.
If you would like to learn more about how your school can participate in a Bag-A-Thon event, please download the information below:
