Author: Alacia Nixson, Keep Norfolk Beautiful
It’s time to CLEAN YOUR BLOCK! Each year Keep Norfolk Beautiful hosts the Great American Cleanup in Norfolk to encourage residents to beautify their neighborhood by planting trees and native plants, picking up litter, and recycling materials found in their household. This year’s theme for the Great American Cleanup is “Clean Your Block Party”. Keep Norfolk Beautiful will be coordinating various community cleanups from March – June. In addition, Keep Norfolk Beautiful will sponsor Keep Norfolk Beautiful Day as well as Norfolk Recycles Day. The Great American Cleanup is an opportunity to empower volunteers and encourage participants to improve public spaces. Each year our goals are to increase the number of participants, increase the number of spaces beautified, and increase the amount of recyclables collected. Ready to clean your block? Contact us!
