Community Litter Cleanup: Litter Dash

Friday, April 26, 2019 12:00 p.m.

Post Date:03/01/2019 10:15 AM

The City of Sioux City invites residents, businesses, schools, and community groups to coordinate a team for the Sioux City Litter Dash, a litter cleanup, to help beautify our community and reduce the impact of litter on our environment. Working together with the community, these efforts will have a visible, positive impact on our community. Litter negatively impacts our environment, the aesthetic appeal of our community, and even economic development. By volunteering for this event, you send a strong anti-litter message and will receive recognition for your commitment to improve our community.

Teams of 10+ volunteers will designate a team captain and complete the registration form available at www.sioux-city.org/litterdash. Teams will join others at noon on Friday, April 26, for a complimentary lunch and volunteer rally at the Long Lines Family Rec Center. The team will receive collection materials including gloves and bags. Following lunch, each group will go to their assigned location.

In case of inclement weather, your team captain will be notified and the Litter Dash will be rescheduled to Friday, May 3, 2019.

More details can be found at www.sioux-city.org/Litterdash. Registration will be open from March 1 until March 31, 2019. Please email litterdash@sioux-city.org or call Melissa Campbell (City of Sioux City, Environmental Services Division) at 279-6349 with questions.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome. All participants will be required to sign a liability waiver prior to the event; volunteers under the age of 18 will need to submit a waiver signed by a parent/guardian. A link to complete an online waiver of liability is available through the event web page.  

We look forward to working with the community towards a better Sioux City on April 26, 2019!
