23nd Annual Rockbridge Area Community Clean Up

Saturday, March 25 - Sunday, April 2, 2017

RACC, Rockbridge County and VDOT want to thank all the community members and groups that participated in the Clean Up and the Litter Challenge! You collected more than 600 bags worth of roadside litter, tires and furniture. The Trash Bashers claimed the litter cup again this year for their work on Lone Jack Road. They pulled more than 46 bags of trash from our roads! They were awarded the Litter Cup at the county Board of Supervisors meeting in June. Congrats and thanks! Can your team beat them next year?

Lots of other groups picked up tons of trash including the Coastal Canoeists in Goshen Pass, Rockbridge Area, Jakes, Effinger, Kerrs Creek, Sam Houston, and Brownsburg Ruritans, Lexington Jaycees, and so many more. A special thanks goes to a frist-time group, the Boomerrang Gang who took on a nasty roadside sinkhole on Greenhouse Road. Quite a haul!

More group names and photos can be found by clicking on the pins in the map (below).

Single volunteers collected big piles as well, with Ed Hosken getting 10 blacks off Blacks Cr Road, while John Mason took on all of Maple Swamp.

Below is a map showing signups for the 2017 cleanup.
