Clean Fairfax Council Cleanup Program
In the fall and spring, the Council supports County-wide cleanups by individual groups, schools, churches, and businesses. Clean Fairfax Council is a participant in the Great American Cleanup, a national litter control and recycling cleanup program to help make Fairfax County a cleaner place to live, work, and go to school. While they emphasize spring and fall cleanup, they welcome volunteers at any other time of the year. To plan a cleanup day, get some volunteers, select a site, and let the Council know of your plans. They will send you suppiles on a first come, first serve basis FREE OF CHARGE. Supplies include 30 gallon litter bags, clear bags for recyclables, safety vests, hats, safety tips, and other supplies you may need. For more information, contact their office at 703-324-5471, or by e-mail.
