Seeking Cleanup Leaders for The Greater Nashville Litter Cleanup
The Greater Nashville Litter Cleanup, organized by TEC and partners, is a Davidson County litter cleanup weekend taking place on October 7 & 8, 2023. Our goal with this event is to clean up at least 15,000 pounds of litter in one day/weekend across the entire County! We are seeking both "Cleanup Leaders" who will take the initiative to organize a cleanup in their community, and "Cleanup Volunteers" who will help cleanup at one of the events on the map on this page. TEC and partners will assist Cleanup Leaders by providing guidance, cleanup supplies, and event marketing. Cleanup Leaders will find a location to clean up and organize volunteers for their event. We will all win with a cleaner environment!
Click the button(s) on the left to register as a Cleanup Leader or Volunteer by October 2, and we will contact you with more details and instructions. There are no minimum or maximum size event limits. If you are interested in volunteering at one of these events, use the map to the left to register for your preferred cleanup.
