“During the last Keep Palm Coast Clean event, volunteers collected over 66 bags of trash equivalent to 1,100 pounds of trash. This includes heavy misc. items such as chairs, power bed, crates, car parts and tires. Since October 1, 2021, more than 67,000 lbs. of litter has been picked up throughout our beautiful community and we are going to carry-forward our efforts by hosting more frequent events like this.” says Public Works Workforce Data Analyst, Benny Cope.

*Rubber gloves, trash bags, and water will be provided to all volunteers. During the cleanup, 2-3 trucks will be picking up bags along the routes. Please do not put trash in personal vehicles.
