Can I choose where I want to clean up?
Yes. On the morning of the event our volunteers select from about 40 sites. Many of our partners choose to clean sites near their business or organization location. About five of the sites are kid-friendly. You may preview all the sites before the event on our cleanup sites page.
How and where do I register?
Register online by Friday, April 13th to guarantee your free t-shirt. Participants registering after April 13th are not guaranteed a t-shirt. Registration closes at noon on Friday, April 20th.
What neighborhoods are being cleaned up?
Green & Clean benefits the entire community. Our clean-up sites are located throughout Wausau, Rib Mountain, Schofield, Weston and Rothschild. Sites can be viewed on our cleanup sites page.
What do I need to bring?
Safety green t-shirts, trash bags and gloves will be provided. Weather appropriate work clothing is a good idea.
Can I sign a waiver for someone else?
For legal reasons, you may only sign waivers for yourself and your minor children. A signed waiver is required for each volunteer to participate.
Is there a cost to participate?
No, we only ask that you volunteer your time to make the Wausau Metro Area a greener place to live.
What if it rains?
The event will take place rain or shine.
Can I just show up without registering?
All volunteers must register so we can account for event participants.
Can my whole family help?
Yes, the event is a great activity for families with children of all ages, provided a parent is present to supervise and take responsibility for children.
What can I expect the morning of the event?
The event kicks off at 8:00 a.m. with refreshments and “event day” registration for those who have not pre-registered. At 8:45 a.m. sites will be selected and volunteers will receive materials for their territories as well as gloves and trash bags. Participants will be mobilized, and the cleanup will last until 11:00 a.m. Bags of trash will be left as a visible spot on the side of the road for our drivers to pick up.
Where can I pick up my t-shirt?
T-shirts may be picked up on Friday, April 20th between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. at the Ghidorzi office at 2100 Stewart Ave, Suite 300; or at check-in on the morning of the event. Please be ready to state which sizes you need to pick up.
