Participants are encouraged to bring their own gloves and garbage bags, but we will try to bring a limited supply of extras. The trash mob will last for about 1 to 1.5 hours, but people can participate however long they would like.
For those that are new to NOLA Trash Mob, we are a group of volunteers who want to change the way New Orleans thinks about litter, primarily through clean-ups or “trash mobs”. For these trash mobs, we select a public space, usually a particular city block or area that has a significant amount of litter, and we set a time and day to go and pick up trash there. They usually are scheduled about once a week on Sunday mornings.
We welcome feedback from the community of where areas there is a lot of litter to target for future trash mobs. Additionally, if anyone knows of any organizations that would like to publicize and/or sponsor a trash mob event, we are always in need of publicity, incentives for participants, and trash grabbers to save the mob’s back.
So tell your friends and come on out this Sunday to join NOLA Trash Mob!
