NATIONAL CLEANUP DAY
On the third Saturday in September, National CleanUp Day encourages all of us to take action to make the entire country a better place to live. Just think, what if everyone just picked up one piece of litter?
From coast to coast, organizations and individuals alike join forces to clean up parks, trails, beaches, mountains, and open spaces.
Outdoor spaces that are free of trash and litter are a more enjoyable experience for everyone. Preservation of our forefathers’ legacy is up to all of us.
Litter, debris, and trash mar the beauty of our natural landscapes. National CleanUp Day puts litter in its place – in trash and recycle bins. National CleanUp Day provides an opportunity to make those messes right and give the landscape a fresh, clean sweep! Communities, corporations, civic organizations, parks and recreation departments and private citizens will all be uniting together to make National CleanUp Day a success.
By participating on this special day, you will be helping to send a message to your communities that you care about keeping our natural surrounding clean throughout the year. Won’t you join us to make your community beautiful?
