PRESENTED BY THE GHIDORZI FOUNDATION
Ghidorzi Green and Clean is ON for Saturday, April 24! We have adjusted our format to offer a safe volunteer opportunity that continues to achieve what we love most about this community event – a chance to band together, get outside and clean up our beautiful Wausau landscape of litter and debris! “Take a walk on the green side,” and make plans to join us!
The event, which has removed 25.34 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.
How the event will work this year:
Volunteers will report directly to their registered cleanup site rather than starting the morning with a kickoff at Corporate Cove as we have done in previous years. Selecting your cleanup site has been built into our convenient online registration, which is required for all participants. Volunteers will pick up their official Ghidorzi Green and Clean supply kit the week leading up to the event, which includes a free safety green T-shirt for each registered participant, trash bags, gloves and printed site maps.
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!
