SAT 08/08/2015 Event: Litter Clean Up w/ BDC

Let’s talk litter.

Bloomfield is looking a little trashy these days and we can help. That said, we completely understand that littler clean ups are a band-aid that ignores the root cause of the problem: people who choose to litter.

That’s why THIS SATURDAY’s clean up leaving from the Bloomfield Saturday Market, 10am – Noon won’t be an ordinary one. We’ll record the amount of trash collected from the streets to use as a baseline.

Litter Clean Up
10AM – Noon
@ Bloomfield Saturday Market

Soon we’ll put out some additional cigarette receptacles and along Liberty and do a an education campaign, then we’ll hopefully be able to have a sense of whether there was a reduction in the number of cigarettes and other trash on the street.

The clean up will focus on the Liberty Avenue business district and key side streets (depending on the number of volunteers).

Every volunteer will get to sport an official Bloomfield Development Corporation t-shirt, will receive a handmade card from me, and will offered beer AND ice cream following the event.
