PRESENTED BY THE GHIDORZI FOUNDATION
Join us Saturday, April 27, 2024!
Thank you to everyone who participated in 2023. We collected over 4.16 tons of trash on Earth Day, April 22. See you next year!
Everyone is invited to join us on Saturday, April 27, 2024 for the Ghidorzi Green and Clean, Wausau’s annual cleanup to free our beautiful landscape of litter and debris. The event, which has removed 37.62 TONS of trash to date, is a productive way for individuals and groups of all ages to celebrate Earth Day and engage in a healthy outdoor activity in support of our community.
Registration is currently closed.
How the event works:
Our convenient online registration, which is required for all participants, allows you to choose your cleanup area from more than 35 sites in the greater Wausau community.
The week leading up to the event, volunteers may pick up their official Ghidorzi Green and Clean supply kit that includes a free safety green T-shirt for each registered participant, trash bags, gloves and printed site maps at the Ghidorzi corporate office in the Union Station Building at 2100 Stewart Avenue, Suite 300, or you may pick up your items at the Event Kickoff on April 27.
The day of the event, you may choose to join us for the ever popular Ghidorzi Green and Clean kickoff at Corporate Cove, complete with fresh donuts and hot Starbucks coffee. Or you may report directly to the cleanup site you selected when you registered.
Volunteers will clean up their registered site from 9-11 a.m., leaving bags of trash in a visible roadside location. A driver will be assigned to each cleanup site and will make the rounds picking up the bags.
Everyone is invited to tune in to the Ghidorzi Green and Clean social media channels for fun-filled photos from the event! Sharing your pictures and experience is also highly encouraged.

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!
