Mini Clean-Up Kits (April – May 2020)
While Ohioans are confined to their homes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, they are limited to simple exercise and recreation options (i.e. walking) outdoors. Many people have expressed their concerns over the amount of litter along walking routes that was left over from the winter. Litter is dirty and the risk of spreading germs deters people from picking up and disposing of litter properly.
Erie Conservation District is putting together clean-up kits for those who would like to pick up litter during their daily walks. The mini clean-up kit is designed to be a small-scale version of the GREEN Bean Clean-Up Trailer, a free and rentable trailer for volunteer groups host clean-up or beautification projects in Erie County.
Each kit includes the following:
- 1-2 sterilized trash grabbers
- 1-2 pairs of clean gloves
- trash bags
To reserve your kit(s), call our office at (419) 626-5211. No-contact kit pick-ups/drop-offs occur on Mondays and Fridays at noon by the GREEN Bean Trailer in the parking lot of 2900 Columbus Ave.
