Since this cleanup is 1 week before Halloween, we’re encouraging kids to wear their costumes and we’ll have a huge blow up pumpkin they can pose with for photo ops.
And if you have slightly used costumes that you no longer need, please bring them with you and we’ll take them to the local Boys & Girls Club for reuse - they will LOVE them.
For the cleanup, we provide garbage bags, protective gloves, free parking and community service certificates for kids for school requirements.
