. Thanks for helping the Department keep Palm Beach County clean and green.
Important Reminders: Remember, we are doing things a bit different because of Covid 19. Please read the following bulleted items:
Group Size – We are limited to 10 people per cleanup. This number includes any staff helping with the event. So depending on the event the number of volunteers allowed to register may be 7, 8 or 9. Please register early if you want to help – and if you have to cancel, please let me know as soon as possible so your spot can be given to another volunteer.
Safety Equipment – Please bring a mask with you. This does not mean you have to wear it during the entire event. Volunteers will need to wear a mask when 6 feet of distance can’t be maintained (for example, when volunteers are transported around the site).
Gloves and Water Bottles – Please bring your own gloves and a water bottle. I will have gloves and cups with me in case people forget – but having your own equipment reduces physical interaction with staff and other volunteers.
Summer Heat – Over the summer months (June, July, August, September) we will be on an abbreviated work schedule – planning only 2 events each month. The events will begin at 8 a.m. and end around 10:45 a.m. With heat indexes hovering near 100 degrees it is just too hot to do multiple events that feature strenuous outdoor work.
