Trick-or-Trash Community Cleanup Ft. Costume Contest
Silver City’s Pick It Up–Toss No Mas is thrilled to present our Trick-or-Trash Community Cleanup event! Get ready to put on your most enchanting Halloween costume for a chance to win a prize and enjoy a frighteningly fun time as we clean up our community. Join us on Saturday, October 14th, 2023, at the Grant County Community Foundation parking lot from 9 am to noon. You won’t want to miss this spooktacular chance to make a difference in your community!
Volunteers should meet at the Grant County Community Foundation parking lot at 1106 North Pope Street, at 9 am on Saturday, October 14th and grab your supplies, including trash bags, gloves, trash pickers, snacks, and free t-shirts for new volunteers. Once you’ve finished collecting litter, return to the parking lot and drop off all trash and recyclables between 11am and noon. We’ll record your cleanup results which could qualify you for a prize!
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. Families with younger children are encouraged to clean up litter in their neighborhood, local parks or waterways as children under 12 are not permitted on state highways for the cleanup.
Thank you to the New Mexico Department of Transportation for hauling the collected trash to the landfill. Recyclables will be recycled with Silver City Recycles.
Check out the Pick It Up-Toss No Mas website www.silvercitytossnomas.org to sign up to volunteer and to learn about litter prevention opportunities, the business pledge program, Adopt-A-Roadway or Waterway program, and solid waste disposal and recycling resources.
