COVID got us last year but we're reviving the event this spring and boy do those roads need it! Get your group together, and your masks, and sign up to participate in the clean-up this year!
RACC, Rockbridge County and VDOT are enlisting the efforts of organizations and groups, students, families, and individual volunteers to help beautify our Rockbridge home. In an effort to raise additional awareness to litter issues in our community the 26th Annual Rockbridge Area Community Cleanup will once again include the Litter Challenge! The group collecting the greatest number of bags wins the Litter Cup created by Mark Cline.
For four years running, the Litter Challenge title holder has been the "Trash Bashers," with the 2019 team shown below. Last year they collected 59 bags worth of trash.--- Can your team beat the Trash Bashers this year? ----
Participate in the 2021 Litter Challenge during the 26th Annual Community Cleanup Week to see if you can take the Litter Cup from The Trash Bashers.Contest rules are listed below.

Help us get the word out! Print out this flyer and post it at your work, church or neighborhood store, or email the flyer your friends. Thank you!
Cleanup Tips: VDOT will collect orange trash bags left along the roadside. You may leave large items for disposal (tires, wire, etc.) next to orange bags. If you work in an area inaccessible to VDOT trucks, please move bags to the nearest roadway. Recycling, if collected, clean, and separated, must be delivered to a County Recycling Center.
A Note of Caution: Cleanup participants are advised to wear gloves and orange safety vests, work facing traffic, and be very careful on busy roads. Large CAUTION signs are available from VDOT. Volunteers assume responsibility for their own safety and supervision; no other agency (RACC, VDOT, local governments, etc.) can assume liability for any damage, injury, or loss to any person from any cause.
*Different dates are OK: You are welcome to choose a different date, or postpone due to weather, but if picking up on an alternate date, please alert Clean Up volunteers at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange bag pick-up by VDOT.
