Street Cleanup for Lake Erie - Saturday Novmeber 4th!

It's always fun to jump up and celebrate keeping litter out of Lake Erie!

Join your neighbors and community volunteers for our final street cleanup of 2017 Saturday November 4th at 10am!

Why a Street Cleanup?
Every time it rains, litter from our streets makes it way into our storm sewers and our storm sewers outflow either directly into Lake Erie or into creeks and tributaries. If it is on the ground, chances are it will make it into our water. Let's do our part to keep trash out of our waterways!

The Details:
Volunteers will meet outside the Collinwood Recreation Center (16300 Lakeshore Blvd.) in the parking lot at 10:00 a.m. for registration. Cleanup teams will pick up litter along Lakeshore Boulevard between Wildwood Park and East 156th Street. Gloves, bags, rakes and trash pickers will be provided. However, you are welcome to bring your own. We will have coffee and other refreshments

Volunteers under 18 are required to have a parent or guardian complete the sign in registration and volunteers under 13 are required to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Need motivation?
All volunteers will receive a coupon good for one half off the purchase of a drink and meal item from Chili Peppers Restaurant (869 East 185th Street). Please be sure to thank owner Steve Newman when you stop in!
