On Saturday, May 14th volunteers will congregate at the Green River Chamber of Commerce/Visitor Center at 8:00 am to enjoy breakfast, get garbage bags, gloves and a FREE t-shirt, then choose an area to clean.

Volunteers will then proceed to their assigned area and collect trash and debris until 11:00 am.

Items for disposal need to be placed on the curb so that City employees can haul them to the dump.

Shredding bins will be available at the Green River Chamber from May 2nd through May 31st and on Clean Up Day.

Residents are welcome to bring the materials they need shredded to the chamber during that time. Please be advised this is on a first come first serve basis in case the bins do fill up.

The Citywide Clean-Up week will be held May 14, following the Saturday City-Wide Clean-Up day.

During the week-long event, the City provides a flatbed service so that citizens can put large items out with their weekly trash for pick-up.

During that week, other entities such as Sweetwater County School District #2 and the Sheriff’s Department volunteer their services.

Volunteers may also sign up online through the chamber’s website.
