Are you part of the #trashtag
Challenge – the global movement that went viral on social media earlier this
month? People all over the world are participating by cleaning up litter and
posting before and after pictures on social media with the hashtag #trashtag.
Cuyahoga Recycles offers supplies and support to
organizations and schools that want to get involved in environmental clean-up
efforts. “We have been offering the Clean Up Cuyahoga program since 2012 and
we’re encouraged that the #trashtag idea has brought
litter problems to the forefront,” says Diane Bickett,
executive director of the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District.
Clean Up Cuyahoga kits include recycling bags, garbage bags,
cloth gloves, car litter bags, seed packets, educational materials and
promotional items. Groups and schools can request kits for up to 30
participants. Any adult representative of a school or youth group may request a
clean-up kit by completing a short form at this link: https://cuyahogarecycles.org/clean_up_cuyahoga.
Cuyahoga Recycles can also loan additional supplies like
large shovels, garden shovels, litter pick-up tools, safety vests and
additional garden gloves for large groups or group plantings.
“Of course, we’d love to see the #trashtag
movement take hold in Cuyahoga County and we encourage everyone to tag #CuyahogaRecycles in their social media posts as well,” Bickett says.
