Registration is now underway for the Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) Rivers Alive countywide cleanup on Saturday, Oct. 13, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. The deadline to sign up is Monday, Oct. 8.
KCRB encourages civic and neighborhood groups, businesses, Boy and Girl Scout troops, churches, youth groups, individuals, and families to participate.
Check in, cleaning supply assignments and other activities will be headquartered at Pine Log Park Pavilion, 1500 Georgia Highway 138, Conyers. Cleanup supplies will be provided and volunteers will receive free lunch and a T-shirt for participation until noon while supplies last as a thank you.
Created by the Department of Natural Resource’s Environmental Protection Division and Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation, Rivers Alive targets waterways as part of an ongoing statewide campaign to clean and preserve more than 70,000 miles of Georgia’s rivers and streams.
Volunteers in Rockdale will support the effort by helping prevent pollution of the county’s rivers, streams, creeks, lakes, and wetlands.
Last year, more than 200 volunteers, including nearly 100 youths, removed tons of garbage and more than 14 tires from several locations throughout Rockdale, as well as covered several miles of waterways.
Registration forms are available online at www.rockdalecountyga.gov and can be sent to email@example.com or dropped off in-person at 958 Milstead Ave. in Conyers.
