Here's a chance to 'Walk Hampton Clean' and help the environment on April 21-28

whc-nf

March 6,  2018 - Area individuals, businesses and groups are invited to Walk Hampton Clean April 21-28, anytime between sunrise and sunset.

Designed to coincide with Earth Day, which is April 22, and organized by Hampton's Clean City Commission, Walk Hampton Clean is a week-long community celebration that encourages walking throughout the city to pick up litter and debris. The group that registers the most miles will be announced on Monday, April 30 and will win a special prize pack.

Because Hampton is a waterfront community, more than 75% of litter will end up in our waterways – unless we act now. By working together and involving families, children and organizations, we can reduce litter and create a cleaner environment.

Equipment for the cleanup, including litter sticks, gloves and trash bags,  can be requested when registering, but must be reserved by April 18 and picked up from the Clean City offices by 4 p.m. Friday, April 20.  To register and sign up for equipment go online. For more information, contact Christine Ausink at  causink@hampton.gov, or call 757-727-1158.  

Hampton's Clean City Commission is  an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, Inc., which works to improve and enhance the physical environment of Hampton through beautification, solid waste management education, coastal awareness activities, and litter abatement programs. The Commission educates citizens and and encourages their participation.  For more information about the Commission, visit www.hampton.gov/hccc.
