Register Your Keep Mohawk Valley Beautiful Clean Up or Beautification Project!
Litter is not simply unpleasant to look at; there are environmental and economic costs to litter that negatively impact local wildlife, public drainage systems, road safety and property values. The cleanup and beautification efforts of KMVB have far reaching positive impacts on the environment, our communities, and even the mental well being of our residents.
Last year, over 1,700 volunteers across the Mohawk Valley collectively removed 3,100 bags of litter from parks, roadways, and waterways.
As Spring approaches, KMVB is calling on local businesses, residents, and local leaders to register a team to pick up litter and beautify our parks, neighborhoods, and waterways to surpass last year’s impressive cleanup results. The KMVB cleanup is centered around Earth Day (April 22nd), but groups are encouraged to schedule their cleanup whenever it is convenient between April 22 and August 31, 2023.
Registering your clean up allows KMVB to report the impact of our region’s efforts to the KAB national office. When you register, the KMVB team will coordinate your cleanup efforts and provide you with supplies, such as trash bags and gloves. To register your team visit www.mvedd.org/kmvb
Pick up your free clean-up supplies at 287 Main Street, Schoharie, Monday-Friday between 9am and 5pm.
