Volunteers are divided into groups and will be driven by Town staff or you may choose to walk to where you would like to pick up trash within the Town limits along the creek. In prior years we’ve even had people launch their boat into the creek and pick up trash. Trash is collected along different places of Quantico Creek such as Main St, Possum Point Rd, Old Stage Coach Rd etc. Filled bags will be picked up by Town staff on a regular basis where everyone is picking up from. After completion everyone meets back at the Community Center, receive a t-shirt etc., take pictures and lunch is served. We hope you can join us.
