GREAT AMERICAN CLEAN-UP
April 25, 8:00am until noon the Santa Rosa Clean Community System will be participating in the “Great American Clean-up”. This is a nationwide effort to celebrate Earth Day, (April 22) and remove as much litter as possible from our environment. With the help from the Florida Department of Transportation, a donation of dumpsters from Waste Pro USA, cooperation with the Santa Rosa County’s Board of County Commissioners, the City of Milton and volunteers from the community, we hope to make this year’s event as successful as possible.
Our concerned citizens of Santa Rosa County have been speaking out about the litter in our community. This is a chance for you, your family, or your organization to make a real difference. Join the effort to clean up our community and Keep Santa Rosa Beautiful. We are fortunate to live in this wonderful part of the world and we should, at least, keep it litter free.
We have a limited number of event T-shirts to give away, so come early. Trash bags and water for all who participate in cleanups will be provided.
If you already have an area to clean, are willing to participate, or want more information, please contact Kevin at The Santa Rosa Clean Community System, Inc.
