Clean Gloucester Day in 2016 took place on Saturday, March 19. 589 volunteers took part in Clean Gloucester Day 2016 and collected more than 10.9 tons of trash, litter, and debris.
Volunteers worked along county roads gathering lumber, numerous tires, scrap metal, and 874 bags of trash.
Since its inception in 2011, more than 2,449 volunteers have collected a total of 61 tons of trash and litter on Clean Gloucester Day.
The Clean Community Committee extends a sincere "Thank you" to all the volunteers for coming out to help clean Gloucester.
Special thanks go to:
• VDOT for supplying the orange bags, collecting bags left on the roadside, and use of the Commuter Parking Lot on Guinea Road for a staging area.
• Waste Management for supplying dumpsters at the two staging areas
• Main Street Preservation Trust for use of the Main Street Center parking lot for a staging area
• The Sheriff's Office, Abingdon Ruritan Club, Gloucester Rogue FC and the Inmate Crew for collecting a combined total of more than two tons of trash.
• The Shack Hunt Club for collecting just under one ton of trash.
We would also like to thank the Gloucester-Mathews Gazette-Journal for assisting with outreach efforts for Clean Gloucester Day.
