April 17 & 18, 2021 -- Saturday & Sunday
How can you participate? The Darke County Community Clean-Up days are scheduled for April 17 & 18, 2021, rain or shine. The collection is set to begin at 8:00 a.m Saturday. To accomdate all of our volunteers, the district is making this a two-day event. The district is looking for numerous groups of 4 or 5 to “pound the pavement” at their assigned 2-mile (depending on cross roads, sections maybe longer or shorter than 2 miles) locations picking-up bags of trash and recyclables. Clean-up groups can be started with friends from school, work, church, and volunteer organizations or clubs. Call the district at 937-547-0827 to offer in-kind support. Each group will be given black bags for trash and clear bags for recyclables. For separating the recyclables from the trash, each group will be awarded $75 for participating. The $75 award must be given to a Darke County, Ohio non-profit organziation.
Trucks from the Darke County Highway Garage will follow assigned routes and will pick-up bags left on the targeted collection roads on Monday.
