Volunteers Encouraged to Sign Up for the Newest Rockdale Cleanup Event

 

CONYERS, Ga. – In an effort to keep Rockdale beautiful and further the County’s green initiatives, Rockdale County Government invites members of the community to join in the Rockin’ Rockdale Countywide Cleanup event on Sat., June 10, 7 a.m.-11 a.m., with check-in and registration at the Rockdale County Courthouse, 922 Court St., Conyers, 30012.

The Rockin’ Rockdale Countywide Cleanup event will involve the efforts of Rockdale County officials, department directors and staff along with citizen volunteers helping to collect litter, tires and other debris around the community. In addition to removing debris from several locations, Rockdale County Department of Transportation (RDOT) will be cutting grass at the gateways to the county off I-20.

“Through this event, we are letting the members of the community know that we share their same interest in the beautification of Rockdale,” Chairman Oz Nesbitt, Sr. says. “Together we can all share a part in maintaining the aesthetically pleasing Rockdale we desire, therefore, increasing the quality of life.”

Rockdale County Board of Commissioners (BOC) and staff invite civic and neighborhood groups, businesses, Boy and Girl Scout troops, churches, youth groups, individuals, and families to participate in the Rockin’ Rockdale Cleanup Event. Volunteers are asked to send one representative from their group to the Rockdale County Courthouse to check in and pick up supplies for their entire group beginning at 7 a.m. on the day of the cleanup.

Registration is strongly encouraged at www.rockdalecountyga.gov. Registration forms also can be picked up and dropped off at the County’s Administrative Services Building, 958 Milstead Ave., Conyers, 30012.

The deadline to pre-register is Tuesday, June 6.

Volunteers will be provided cleaning supplies – garbage bags, gloves and brightly-colored safety vests – while available. They will also receive a sponsored meal and a T-shirt for participating, while supplies last.
