How to Organize an Effective Clean-Up

1. Survey the area: List each street and address you wish to have cleaned
2. Recruit volunteers: Make phone calls, do personal follow-ups, and use neighborhood recruitment to ensure volunteer participation.
3. Schedule a date and tasks: Confirm your core organizers and how materials will be picked up. Weather is always a factor; don’t forget to schedule a rain date.
4. Spread the word: Contact local media, put up flyers, inform neighbors
5. Clean-Up Day: Designate a central location, have a sign-in sheet, select team captains
6. Public Safety: Wear bright colors so oncoming traffic will see you. No horseplay, shoving, etc.
7. Have fun!
