Keep Bristol Beautiful Annual Great American Cleanup

April 25, 2011

Civic groups, youth teams, churches, schools, clubs, and businesses are asked to show community pride and volunteer to help clean up Bristol. Volunteers are needed to step forward to improve the Bristol community as part of the Great American Cleanup, a grassroots beautification, litter prevention, and community improvement program led nationwide by Keep America Beautiful, Inc. Volunteers in Bristol are joining millions of others across the country to rid our streets, waterways and public spaces of litter and illegal dumpsites. We’re greening-up parks, schoolyards and other public spaces, holding recycling drives and educational events.

Keep Bristol Beautiful/ Great American Cleanup Main Event:
Saturday, April 30, from 9 am — noon:
Bristol Chamber of Commerce Parking Lot
20 Volunteer Parkway, Bristol, TN 37620

Volunteers should meet at the Bristol Chamber of Commerce to register and pickup supplies.
Be sure to report the number of bags collected to Keep Bristol Beautiful to compete for prizes. Separate aluminum cans for recycling.
Coca Cola Bottling Company, Food City and Dominos Pizza will provide refreshments and lunch.
Participants will receive free t-shirts while supplies last.

A better environment for us all starts in our own communities. The Great American Cleanup is an opportunity for everyone to work together to improve our quality of life. The work we do in our own communities affects our entire planet. The Great American Cleanup empowers people to improve the quality of life in their local communities through litter removal, recycling, clothes collections, and beautification projects. Last year, more than two million volunteers took part in the Great American Cleanup, which runs nationally March 1 – May 31.
