Join us for Orono's Street and Stream Clean up on May 21st, 2022

This will be a 'virtual' event with a short informational talk about safety and why we clean up our streets on May 21st at 9:00 AM via Zoom (link to be emailed after registration). Then, volunteers will be able to leave from their homes and pick up litter wherever they choose. Volunteers may leave full trash bags along their registered routes and Public Works employees will pick it up on May 21st. The street and stream clean up is something we can do to make Orono even more beautiful this time of year, so come out and enjoy the outdoors.

REGISTRATION

You may volunteer individually or as a team. Volunteers have from now until May 19th to register! 

Registering will also get you a clean-up kit that includes gloves, trash bags, 5 gallon buckets and a gift certificate for lunch for each member of your team.

REGISTRATION LINK

After you’ve finished, show off your hard work by emailing us photos of your cleaned-up area.

WHAT IF I CANNOT ATTEND ON THE 21st?

Alternatively, you can choose whatever day you want to pick up litter if you cannot make the May 21st date. Although, we recommend doing your clean-up on May 21st when Public Works will be available to pick up collected trash by the road side. If you choose to do your clean-up on a different day, please still register so we can get you supplies, but just put your collected trash with your regular curbside trash pickup. 

BE CAREFUL ABOUT THE TRASH YOU PICK UP

Be careful about the trash you pick up! If it’s too heavy, or if it is potentially contaminated (needle, soda bottle, etc), be safe! Mark the location for Public Works or Public Safety and call in the location at 207-889-6101.
