RVA Clean Sweep has been conducting monthly trash cleanups in Randolph since September 2014. This year volunteers removed over a ton of litter (2,000 pounds) off the streets of our neighborhood. Volunteers have stated they are starting to see the difference in certain sections of Randolph. RVA Clean Sweep has also been working with GRTC to install additional trash cans along Allen and Idlewood to help lessen the amount of street litter along these roads.
Out of the 184 volunteers hours put into our neighborhood to fight litter, Randolph neighbors provided around 16% of the support. We encourage residents of Randolph to volunteer 60-90 minutes once a year to a neighborhood cleanup. If you are unable to physically attend a cleanup, promoting the cleanups on your social media pages OR talking to your neighbors about the cleanups would be of great help. If you have school aged children that need community service volunteer hours, these cleanups count!
Our goal for 2016 is to see more neighbors faces at these monthly cleanups! We already have two cleanups schedule in January 2016.
