Great American Cleanup calls for volunteers

Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful is calling for volunteers to come out and help in the Great American Cleanup on Sat., May 3, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m., at Pine Log Park Pavilion, 1500 Ga. Highway 138, Conyers.

The half-day event, which KCRB hosts in partnership with the City of Conyers and Rockdale County government, encourages residents to pick up garbage, tires and other debris around the community, and teaches youth about the importance of litter prevention and recycling as much of the materials collected as possible.

KCRB invites civic and neighborhood groups, businesses, Boy and Girl Scout troops, churches, youth groups, individuals, and families to participate in GAC. Volunteers are encouraged to send a representative from their group to the park's pavilion to check in and pick up supplies beginning at 9 a.m. on the day of the cleanup.

Last year, more than 300 volunteers participated in GAC by sprucing up local roadways, subdivisions, commercial properties, parks, schools, and illegal dumpsites across Rockdale.

All cleaning supplies - garbage bags, gloves and brightly-colored safety vests - will be provided to volunteers at no charge. Volunteers will also receive free food and a T-shirt for participating while supplies last.

Volunteer registration forms are available online at To register, or for more information, please call 770-278-7052 or email Forms also can be mailed to Rockdale County Department of Community Affairs & Innovative Programs, P.O. Box 289, Conyers, GA 30012 or dropped off at the County's Administration and Services Building, 958 Milstead Ave., Conyers, 30012.

Through public-private partnerships and strategic alliances with citizens, businesses and government, KCRB's efforts each year motivate hundreds of volunteers to clean up, beautify and improve Conyers-Rockdale, thereby creating safer, more livable environments.
