To recruit volunteer workers from the residential, business and teenage student populations to pick up small litter from downtown Marengo and Union as well as roadways along other business areas. Large items, yard waste and hazardous materials are not a part of this program. Due to liability issues, we will only accept student volunteers of high school age and above.

Community assembles at City Lot behind Marengo Fire Department for continental breakfast, instructions, work sites and supplies. The clean up lasts from 9 – 11 a.m. Workers returnto the Fire Department for a light lunch and prize drawings.

Committee sets policy, selects work sites, ecruits volunteers, sponsors and donors; promotes the event. Committee assigns volunteers to work sites and supervises activity on the date of the event.
