After a year off, we are excited to bring back the Glen Rock Community Clean-Up (this will be #4). Because we had to skip 2020, due to COVID, our little borough has a lot more litter around so we need all hands on deck! Volunteers will be scattered all over town to pick trash from 930-1130am during this amazing community effort.
COVID Precautions: - Wear a mask (double up if you can) and dress for the weather. Masks are required. - Everyone will be required to take their own temperature before arriving. - Please do not attend this event if you have COVID symptoms or if in the last 14 days you've been in contact with someone who has COVID.
Pick Up with Your Pod: The Community Clean-Up was already a socially distanced event but this year we are really asking families, of all ages, to register together! We'll spread you out more than we normally do and there will be an extra component of cleaning up your block (details TBD).
Who: Anyone can participate! Really, this event is good for ALL AGES and you do not have to be a resident. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
Registration Required: Due to the town insurance policy, all volunteers must register with their full name and address. We are gathering information on the ages of the volunteers so we can properly assign everyone to an area to clean-up.
Site Locations: Your clean-up location will be sent out the day before. Normal areas include all the parks, train stations, fields, the PSEG Gully, and more!
What to Bring/Wear: April is normally a very wet month so we recommend rainboots or work boots. But if you don't have a pair, go for an old pair of sneakers. Please bring your own gloves (plus extra pairs). You can buy gardening gloves at most dollar stores (the Fair Lawn store has them) but you can also use winter gloves and simply wash them when you are done.
