Other tips

  • Stay Hydrated.

    Louisiana, as I’m sure you know, gets HOT, especially during the summer months. Make sure your volunteers are drinking lots of water, so they don’t overheat.

  • Schedule your cleanup for early in the day.

    Volunteers usually prefer early events so they have the rest of the day to themselves. Also, it usually gets hotter as the day goes on, so planning your cleanup for early in the morning is the best way to ensure that your volunteers are comfortable.

  • Make it fun!

    Litter cleanups don’t need to be long and strenuous. They can double as fun get togethers with friends and family! Maybe bring some music or compete who can pick up the most litter. After all, volunteers who have a good time are much more likely to volunteer with you again.

Large, frequently-dumped items

Some litter might be too big to pick up with a grabber and throw in a trash bag. Here are large some items you might run into during your cleanup.
