April 22 Community Cleanup

Let’s celebrate Earth Day on Thursday, April 22 by caring for our public spaces with a Community Clean-Up Day.

After a year of staying at home, let’s celebrate a new year with some spring cleaning. You can help by picking up trash from ditches and public grounds or by disposing of unwanted debris from the yards, sheds, and garages of people who are unable to dispose of it themselves.

Clean-up work will be in conformance with continuing guidance from the Bayfield County Health Department regarding the pandemic. Individual households or small groups of fully vaccinated individuals may volunteer for a section of roadway and/or someone’s yard and can work together in the same area while remaining separate from other groups. Once we have a set of responses, we will do our best to match road segments and yard work to volunteer offers.

Roadside/ditch cleaners are requested to provide their own trash bags. Bags and larger debris can be left on the shoulder, and we will arrange for them to be picked up.

Please note that yard clean-up cannot include hazardous waste such as electronics, paints, solvents, tires, motor oil, batteries, or medications. These materials will be addressed during the Bayfield County Clean Sweep.

Earth Day is coming up quickly, so please respond as soon as possible to tobchair@cornywi.org or by leaving a voicemail at 715-209-7323. In your response, please indicate how you are willing to help or whether you need help removing debris from your property. Thank you!
