PRINCETON, WV (WVNS)– Organizers of the Keep Mercer Clean Campaign found a way to get people outdoors while still social distancing.
Their “Take Five” initiative allows people to take a break from being inside while helping make their community a cleaner place.
Volunteers will receive five orange bags, and a grabber. They will be dropped at your home, and once the bags are filled with litter, organizers will come and pick it up. Volunteers must be at least 11-years-old.
Here are some more guidelines:
- Must wear bright colors
- Must have closed shoes, long sleeve shirts, long pants, and gloves must be worn
- Carry a cellphone to community with teammates and Solid Waste Authority Staff
- No pets
- Bring plenty of fluids to drink
- Know the location of the nearest hospital
- No alcoholic beverages
- Beware of your surroundings
- Use the buddy system
- Do not pick up hazardous items
- Do not overstuffed bags
- Wash hands with soap and water during clean up
