Pick up a kit and gather litter from your neighborhood, around your work place, or wherever you see the need!
Get your kit at Hy-Vee, NewBo City Market, Indian Creek Nature Center, City Hall, and other locations.
You can take as many litter collection kits as you think you will use. If you are interested in picking up litter on a continuous basis or have a group interested in picking up litter, contact the Cedar Rapids Solid Waste & Recycling Office at 319-286-5897, so we can get you the supplies you need.
Fill the bag with litter you find around your neighborhood, place of work, or wherever you see the need.
Set the full bag beside your GARBY cart on your normal garbage collection day. The special City Manager's Challenge bags do not require an extra $1.50 sticker.
Residents should not pick litter up on the interstate, unless they are part of a sanctioned group. Do not pick up litter on private property without permission.
The challenge runs until Oct. 31.
One bag on its own may not seem like a big deal, but if all 126,000 citizens took the time to collect one bag, it would make a huge difference in our community.
