Do you notice litter on the side of the road where you live, work, or play? Do you want to do something about it? Join us for volunteer training to learn about safety and best practices for conducting roadside and waterway cleanups.

When: 11 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Where: Zoom Online; Register for free on Eventbrite

NC Department of Transportation runs the Adopt-A-Highway program and has fantastic resources to help volunteers stay safe while removing litter from the roadside. We will also discuss best practices to keep volunteers safe during river, lake, and stream clean-up events.

The City of Marion in partnership with Keep McDowell Beautiful coordinates the Adopt-A-Street program, modeled after the NCDOT and other high-quality programs across the country.

If you are a leader of volunteers this training will help you organize your people, request free supplies from the State, County, or City, and report your clean up for the proper people to pick it up in a timely manner. If your a volunteer on a clean up this training will help you identify potentially dangerous situations, and teach you what to do to keep your people safe.

If you’re unable to walk the roadside and pick up trash, this training will help you to be involved as a volunteer driver, volunteer recruiter, or in event promotion. There are ways for everyone to help Keep McDowell Beautiful!

If you have questions please call us at (828) 652-8104.
