What YOU Can Do

The Clean Community program could not function without volunteers, and there are plenty of opportunities for citizens to get involved!

Organize a Clean Up

The Clean Community Office would love to support your efforts. We can provide safety vests, bags, grabbers, buckets, safety guidelines, and other supplies. To coordinate a supply pickup, please contact Clean Community at or call 804-693-5370

We ask that you complete and turn in a reporting form after every cleanup so that the Clean Community Coordinator, a grant-supported position, can continue to provide this service to the Gloucester community.

Have You Helped Clean Up Gloucester County?

If so, we would like to know! Please complete this short report (PDF) so we can keep track of the good work being done in Gloucester. Scan and email, fax, or mail the form to the Clean Community Office.

Volunteer on the Clean Community Committee

This board serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Supervisors and Clean Community staff on matters related to litter prevention, solid waste management, recycling, and beautification. Meetings are comprised of the Clean Community Coordinator, a Board of Supervisors representative, and seven voting members approved by the Gloucester Board of Supervisors.  Meetings are once every other month for approximately one hour. For information on recent and past activities of the Clean Community Committee, please refer to the meeting minutes archive at the County's Meetings and Minutes Portal.
