Join your fellow community members and help clean up Runnymede Park, Sugarland Run watershed, and various other park and stream locations on Saturday, April 21, 8 a.m.–12 noon. Individuals, students, families, scouts and other groups can choose between doing a stream clean-up and/or native plant garden work.

There will be a free secure document shred truck at Runnymede Park from 9 a.m.-Noon. Everyone is welcome to take advantage of this service. There is a five container limit per vehicle and all containers will be returned immediately. The following things are accepted: all grades of office paper, including staples, and paper clips and binder clips. The following items are not accepted: newspaper, magazines, phonebooks, cardboard (overnight envelopes), three-ring binders, electronic media (hard drives, tapes and discs), and plastic or metal objects. For safety’s sake, people should remain in their cars until they reach the shred truck. A special thanks to Stohlman Automotive Family for sponsoring this event.
