Clean-Ups

Since 2010, about 5,000 20 Minute Cleanup vol­un­teers have removed lit­ter from neigh­bor­hoods, parks, schools and busi­nesses as part of this annual spring clean­ing project.

In 2012, 88 County res­i­dents spent 188 hours col­lect­ing over 1,500 pounds of trash and 1,000 pounds of recy­clables from streams and open space around the County.

Since 2000, 35.89 miles of water­ways and 52.2 acres of pond area have been cleaned result­ing in 27,257 pounds of trash col­lected and 10,651 pounds of mate­ri­als recycled.

The County’s Adopt-A-Road Pro­gram par­tic­i­pants col­lected nearly 1,500 bags of trash over the past year from 135 miles of road.

Use cloth napkins.It’s actually cheaper to throw cloth napkins in the wash than to buy paper ones.
