Volunteers Encouraged to Sign Up for 2019 Great American Cleanup

 

ROCKDALE COUNTY, Ga. –Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) announces registration is now    open for the Great American Cleanup (GAC) on Sat., April 27, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., at Pine Log Park Pavilion 1500 Ga. Highway 138, Conyers, 30012.

The half-day event, which KCRB hosts in partnership with the City of Conyers and Rockdale County, encourages citizens to pick up garbage, tires and other debris around the community, and teaches youth about the importance of litter prevention and recycling.

KCRB invites civic and neighborhood groups, businesses, Boy and Girl Scout troops, churches, youth groups, individuals, and families to participate in GAC. Volunteers are asked to send one representative from their group to the park’s pavilion to check in and pick up supplies for their entire group beginning at 9 a.m. on the day of the cleanup.

Registration is strongly encouraged at www.rockdalecountyga.gov. Registration forms also can be emailed to kcrb@rockdalecountyga.gov or dropped off at the County’s Administration and Services Building, 958 Milstead Ave., Conyers, 30012.

The deadline to register is Mon., April 22.

Through public-private partnerships and strategic alliances with citizens, businesses and government, KCRB’s efforts each year motivate hundreds of volunteers to clean up, beautify and improve Conyers-Rockdale, thereby creating safer, more livable environments. Last year, a total of 250 volunteers participated in GAC by sprucing up local roadways, subdivisions, commercial properties, parks, schools, and illegal dumpsites across Rockdale.

Volunteers will be provided cleaning supplies – garbage bags, gloves and brightly-colored safety vests – while available, and will need to be returned to Pine Log Park before lunch. They will also receive free food and a T-shirt for participating, while supplies last.

For questions or more information, please email kcrb@rockdalecountyga.gov or
