BN Clean Up Week
April 13 - April 21
The City of Bloomington Beautification Committee, The Town of Normal, and the Ecology Action Center invite area residents to help with the annual community-wide clean up, scheduled for Saturday, April 13, 2019 through Sunday, April 21, 2019. You have a couple of options for helping out:
- If you know of a public park that needs cleaning up, Normal Parks and Recreation Department and City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation will provide clean up supplies (trash bags, gloves). Please leave your collected trash next to an existing public trash receptacle if possible.
- If you know of a private property that needs cleaning up, first seek permission from the property owner. Then you can get trash bags and work gloves from Normal Parks and Recreation or City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation. You will need to make your own arrangments for disposal of the trash collected.
- Sign up to volunteer for the Ecology Action Center’s Earth Day Clean Up on Saturday, April 20, 2019 from 9 a.m. until noon. Our clean up area is the Constitution Trail and Sugar Creek from Tipton Park west to Audubon Gardens. Sign up to receive full details on meeting locations and other instructions. Children under 18 allowed to participate if accompanied by a parent or guardian.
For clean-up supplies, please contact Gene Kotlinski at Normal Parks and Recreation (454-9724 or [email protected]) or the City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation (434-2260).
