2nd Annual Cleanup Challenge Is April 17-23

  • Monday, March 27, 2023

Keep Soddy-Daisy Beautiful is challenging residents and organizations in Hamilton County to join the fight against litter, with the 2nd annual Cleanup Challenge. This cleanup challenge will take place between April 17-23, to coincide with Earth Day on April 22.

During the week, teams will choose their own locations and times to gather and pick up litter throughout the Hamilton County area. Equipment such as bags, gloves and safety vests will be provided by Keep Soddy-Daisy Beautiful for all teams as well as help with disposal. Last year, 17 teams formed throughout Hamilton County and gathered 175 bags of trash and another 160 larger trash items such as tires.

A celebration and prizes will be awarded afterwards, for achievements such as most litter picked up, most bizarre trash item found and most photogenic team. One team will receive a trophy as the winners of the 2023 Cleanup Challenge.

This event is open to all residents, schools, clubs, churches and businesses in Hamilton County and the surrounding areas.
