Our Ghidorzi Green & Clean event will not be possible this year due to the historic snowfall and full snow coverage of the greater Wausau landscape. Thank you to the many volunteers and Event Partners who had planned to join us. 

We truly wish that rescheduling the Ghidorzi Green & Clean were an option. The many resources behind the event cannot easily be mobilized for a different date, and we are sensitive to the other events that take place on the weekends that follow.

Despite cancellation of the one-day cleanup, the opportunity remains for us all to make a great impact picking up litter independently around our neighborhoods and workplaces once the snow is gone. The passion for a clean community continues to grow, and we look forward to making a massive impact next year!


About Us

The Ghidorzi Green & Clean is greater Wausau’s annual community-wide cleanup to free our beautiful landscape of litter and debris. Individuals and groups of all ages and sizes can help give our community a clean start to spring. The event is a productive way to celebrate Earth Day and a healthy outdoor activity for families, friends, neighbors and coworkers.  Free safety green T-shirts, trash bags and gloves are provided, along with a free thank-you kick-off of delicious refreshments.

Why You Should Join Us

A clean city makes a bold statement about the community. It shows that we take pride in our hometown, and even more importantly that we take ownership of it. A clean community is magnetic – it draws people outdoors, attracts visitors and gives an all-around positive feeling about the area. Finally, unlike many environmental problems, we can control litter 100%. Let’s make greater Wausau Green and Clean by making it litter-free!
