Clean Up

To date we have:

Picked up 142,130 needles

Due to previous COVID restrictions on volunteer participation, we have not yet resumed full Sunday Cleanup operations. We are still doing smaller specific areas of emergency cleanup brought in through our tip line. 
If you know of an area that has needles that need to be picked up, please let us know.

We are looking for people who would like to join our security team so that we may resume regular Sunday clean-up operations. If you are interested, please fill out the forms and let us know!
