Newton County's District Commissioners, the Newton County Bicentennial Committee, and Keep Newton Beautiful are hosting a series of Service Days in our community.  The Service Days will feature roadside litter cleanup events in each Commission District. Participants will pick up free t-shirts and cleanup supplies at staging locations and then go out to targeted areas to pick up litter. 

RESCHEDULED Bicentennial Service Day District 1 Cleanup--Saturday, June 26, 2021


REGISTRATION EXTENDED THROUGH WEDNESDAY, JUNE 23!

The District 1 Cleanup will kick off at Alcovy High School at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 12. Targeted cleanup areas include Pickett Bridge Road (between Highway 162 and Highway 212), Campbell Road, County Road 213, Highway 142, and Highway 162.

Group leaders will need to complete registration packets. (Groups may be any size. Individuals may sign up on their own.) All participants will need to complete a health survey and release forms.  Group leaders and individuals signing up on their own (not as part of a group) will need to send in registration forms by June 23 so that volunteers can pre-pack t-shirts and cleanup supplies for everyone in the group.  They should bring completed health surveys and release forms for each person in their groups to the Westside Precinct on June 12 when they pick up their supplies.  If they are meeting their groups at alternate cleanup locations, it is acceptable to take forms there, get participants to sign, and turn in completed forms when the cleanup event is over.
