Self-Directed Trash CleanupPicking Up Trash

Are you tired of seeing trash in our streams, creeks, rivers, streets, alleyways and parks? Well, we are too. As a result, we have come up with a program that allows you to direct your own trash cleanup, even if it’s not on our calendar!  The JRA’s Self-Directed Trash Cleanup Program allows individuals to choose the “who, where, and when” and we provide you with the necessary supplies including trash grabbers, gloves, bags, first aid kits and a report sheet. This allows you greater flexibility to hold an event when it’s convenient for you, rather than trying to coordinate schedules with us.

Getting Started:

Step 1: Choose your cleanup location from the map below.

Step 2: Fill out the Self-Directed Trash Cleanup Form to register your group.

Step 3: JRA staff will contact you to set up a time for you to pick up your cleanup supplies.

Step 4: Go out for your trash cleanup and leave bags at designated area.

Step 5: Before leaving the cleanup site fill out the Group Trash Cleanup Report that is enclosed in the cleanup kit.

Step 6: Return your supplies, with the completed Group Trash Cleanup Report, to JRA during our regular office hours (Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.)

If you know of a site in need of cleaning up, have questions or want more information about the Self-Directed Trash Cleanup Program, contact Ben Hawkins at or 804-788-8811 ext 204.
