Fall Sweep is Here!

We may not be able to host a large group clean-up but we can still do our best to keep Abilene clean and pick up the large amounts of litter seen around our parks and recreation areas during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s Fall Clean-up your small group can pick the day and location you would like to help us clean up.

Litter Clean-up Activities – Safety First

Keep yourself safe. Stay hydrated and energized. Physical Distance. Minimize physical contact with litter. Keep your hands away from your face. Secure the collected materials. If you used any litter collection equipment wipe with disinfectant. Carefully remove gloves and other protective clothing. If you plan on reusing your safety vest, gloves or other clothing, sanitize them by washing them in a washer with regular detergent and cleaning cycles. Wash and sanitize your hands.
