Clean Up the Village 2024

Volunteers Needed!

Help Clean Up the Village in the Richmond Hill BIA!

Join us!

This event is part of the City of Richmond Hill’s Clean Up, Green Up Richmond Hill and we are looking for volunteers to make downtown Richmond Hill a better place.

🥰 WHY CLEAN UP?
Our goal is to make Richmond Hill amazing by collecting all the garbage and recycling that may have blown away on regular garbage days. You will have the opportunity to make new friends, get your student hours (if you are a student) and do something nice for your community.

 

🤔 WHO CAN VOLUNTEER?
We need the following:

  1. RHBIA Clean Up Volunteer Leader – to manage a team of 5-6 volunteers as part of the cleanup. You will get up to 2 streets in the Richmond Hill BIA area, to manage. Arrival time at Registration table (RHCPA courtyard) is 9:45 am.
  2. RHBIA Clean Up Volunteer – will be assigned to a team on the day of the event.

SUPPLIES PROVIDED:
We will provide gloves, garbage, and recycling bags to all volunteers. Clean-up Volunteer Leaders will be responsible for ensuring that each small group of volunteers cleans certain streets in the Richmond Hill BIA.
