Pick It Up - Toss No Mas Community Cleanup
|Saturday, August 27, 2022, 08:00am - 12:00pm
Pick It Up - Toss No Mas will postpone its next community trash cleanup to Saturday, August 27 from 8 am until noon at Gough Park parking lot.
Please note that this month’s cleanup will start at 8 am rather than the usual time of 9 am.
Complimentary coffee and breakfast burritos will be provided as well as prizes.
Meet the Pick It Up – Toss No Mas team in the Gough Park parking lot at 8 am on Saturday, August 27 and pick up trash bags, gloves, trash pickers and snacks and enjoy burritos and coffee with other volunteers.
Volunteers will spend the morning cleaning up litter at a location of their choice and then return to Gough Park between 11 am and noon to drop off trash and recyclables and record their cleanup results. The New Mexico Department of Transportation will collect the trash and haul it to the landfill. Recyclables will be collected and recycled with Silver City Recycles.
Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes and bring a hat, water bottle, and sunscreen. Children 17 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Because children under 12 are not permitted on state highways for the cleanup, families with younger children are encouraged to clean up litter in their neighborhood, local parks or waterways.
Location 12th & Pope Streets
