Virtual Street Cleanup

All Day

*Virtual Event

Join Students for Recycling in a virtual street clean-up around you. Cleaning up in your neighborhood and local parks is a great way to help the environment and spend time outside. We are inviting every student to participate in a virtual cleanup by cleaning up their street and separating recycling and trash. Recyclable items include paper, cardboard, glass bottles, aluminum cans, bottle-shaped plastics and #5 plastics. When in doubt, throw it out! Make sure to post on Instagram and tag us on Instagram @osusfr or DM us a photo so we can repost you and spread the word! We can all play a part in making our Earth a little more beautiful!
