Park cleanups are a helpful way to heal the environment and to beautify the community. When planning a successful park cleanup, organizers should consider all the necessary details in order to make the event a success. Hosts of local park cleanups should keep the following information in mind:

Use Eco Trash Bags

When cleaning the park up, it's important to avoid contributing further to polluting the environment with plastic trash bags. As regular trash bags take over 1,000 years to decompose in a landfill, participants in park cleanups should avoid using these bags at all. When cleaning up the park, hosts should provide participants with eco-friendly alternatives like compostable trash bags, These bags are made of organic materials that won’t cause any additional harm to the environment over time.

Rent an Industrial-Sized Dumpster

With over 100 million pounds of garbage found in the nation’s parks every year, hosts of park cleanups need a suitable way to dispose of this garbage. With a dumpster rental of an industrial-sized container, volunteers are able to effectively collect and dispose of trash. Once the cleanup is complete, the dumpster will be picked up and the park will be trash-free.

Highlight Sections with Safe Access

From the trash left by park visitors to debris from trees and plants, navigating a park cleanup can be dangerous if the necessary precautions aren’t taken. It is up to the cleanup’s host to identify the safest sections of the park for volunteers to clean. This way, participants can work in teams to clean the park as efficiently as possible.

Speak with Proper City Authorities

While it is possible to perform a park cleanup with a few people during an informal event, this isn’t the ideal way to plan a park cleanup. For cleanup to have the most impact, interested parties should get in contact with the city government. When planning a community event like a park cleanup, it’s best for the organizers to speak with the proper city authorities beforehand.

As parks are the responsibility of the government, events like cleanups should always be ordained by the authorities in charge. Once the go-ahead is given by the city, it's time to publicize the event and search for volunteers.

Cleanups help to bring the community together as dedicated residents work to keep their local parks beautiful. With these four tips, your next park clean up will be a success.
