Summer Cleanup: How to Make Your Community Green and Clean Again

Summer Cleanup How to Make Your Community Green and Clean Again.JPG

If you want to have a beautiful community, then you should find ways to keep it clean. Unfortunately, there are people who don’t care about taking care of the environment. However, you can overcome the problems associated with having dirty public areas, especially during the summer.

 

Helping a Senior Citizen Clean a Property

There are likely senior citizens who have a lot of trash on a property, but without any help, the items will degrade, creating additional pollution in the groundwater and soil. You can talk to this neighbor about cleaning up a property to meet certain health codes, and you can find volunteers who will remove the piles of trash.

 

Local Park Cleanups

When your community’s local park has become a disaster zone after a public event such as a free concert, it needs a thorough cleanup. Notify the public about a community cleanup at the local park so that it will become an enjoyable place for children to play. Both children and adults can help clean a local park.

 

Remove Trash from Empty Lots

If your community has numerous empty lots where there were once houses or businesses, then the sites can become locations where people dump excess trash. In some cases, paper trash and beverage cans also collect on abandoned properties when there are rainstorms during the spring. Arrange a Saturday morning cleanup of volunteers who can pick up this accumulation of trash so that an entire neighborhood looks better.

 

Clean a Waterway in Your Community

There are individuals who will throw trash into the local waterways, filling up the streams and ponds with old tires, rusty appliances and other items. The trash that collects in waterways will destroy the natural environment. However, you must choose a time when the weather is dry so that you can remove heavy pieces of trash from the water in a lake or river.

 

Create Community Recycling Stations

When you want to encourage recycling in your community, you can teach your neighbors how to sort different types of trash. First, you will need to arrange dumpster rental so that you can separate plastic, glass and paper items. Your neighbors should learn how to clean and prepare trash for proper recycling.

 

What Else Do You Need for a Community Cleanup?

You will need an assortment of supplies while cleaning anything in your community. In addition to trash bags, you should make sure that volunteers wear protective gloves to prevent cuts on the fingers. A volunteer can also use a mechanical grabbing device to pick up trash from the ground.
