Covid Cleanup Protocols

We love our volunteers and want to see you stay healthy! When conducting litter cleanup events, each member of the Adopt-A-Street group should remember to:


  1. Wash your hands often and use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not readily available.

  2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

  3. Practice social distancing by placing at least 6 feet between yourself and other people.

  4. Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face cover when around others.

  5. Wear plastic gloves throughout the litter cleanup event.
