**Also when you book in the week of our Earth Week celebrations we will be handing out special gifts of appreciation for your participation!
Here we have listed some suggested supplies to keep your clean up fun and safe!
- Trash bags and Recycling bags, most of what you pick up will actually be recyclable!! Have more of the blue bags on hand rather then filling the landfill with things that could be recycled.
- Safety signs
- Buckets for sharp objects
- Insect repellent
- Tools (ropes, rakes, shovels, etc.)
- Safety vests
- First aid supplies
- Communication equipment
Some more things to be aware of :
Make sure everyone is aware of safety requirements and areas to avoid.
Make sure children are assigned adult supervision
Know where to leave collected garbage bags for collection and removal.
Know how to handle and dispose of items that are hazardous waste, tires, batteries, waste oil, etc.
Make sure plenty of water, communications equipment and a first aid kit are on-site.
Know what to do in case of injury or emergency.
Keep a positive attitude and not let volunteers be overwhelmed; the last thing you want to do is overwork your volunteers; you can always schedule another day. Make it fun!!
We always end at least one day with a trip to Dairy Queen to say thanks to our helpers!
thanks to everyone planning to participate including our local schools and businesses, we need all the help we can get!
