Community Collects Several Hundred Pounds of Litter in Great American Cleanup
CONYERS, Ga. – Volunteers with a vested interest in making Conyers-Rockdale a cleaner, greener and more thriving community cleaned local parks, schools, neighborhoods, roadways and waterways through their participation in the Great American Cleanup (GAC).
Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) hosted the half-day event on Sat., April 28 at Pine Log Park in Conyers.
Over 250 volunteers representing local schools, church groups, homeowner and civic organizations, scout troops, small families and individuals donated their time to help remove nearly 900 lbs. of litter and debris.
As a thank you, volunteers received a free BBQ lunch that Rockdale Water Resources and ESG Operations donated and Rockdale Fire and Rescue, who graciously donated their time by grilling for the event. This year a few local waste management companies donated t-shirts, supplies for volunteers, and man power.
To follow up the county-wide cleanup event, KCRB is holding the Electronics Recycling and Paper Shredding event on Sat., May 19 as a part of the GAC efforts for 2018. This event is open to Rockdale residents and business owners. All members of the community participating in this event will receive a free T-shirt while supplies last, as a thank you for helping to keep Rockdale clean, green and thriving.

Through public-private partnerships and strategic alliances with citizens, businesses and government, KCRB’s efforts each year motivate hundreds of volunteers to clean up and improve Rockdale County, thereby creating safer, more livable environments.
