More Water Clean Ups Scheduled for May 2

This group really did a great job in 2008. Register to be a part of this clean up on May 2. I’m doing the Mill Creek clean up in the morning and this one in the afternoon. I’ll have to be hosed down before entering my house that day:

The Largest Water Cleanup in Nashville’s History

Way to go Nashville, we’re kickin’ butt on trash.

You can make another huge difference on Saturday, May 2 (and snag a fun, free boat ride) by participating in the third Nashville Clean Water Project at Percy Priest Lake. We have trash bags, gloves and sunscreen for you… we have snacks, hand sanitizer, T-shirts and hats… …we have gobs of giveaways and live entertainment.It’s the largest water cleanup in Nashville’s history so, of course, it’s going to be huge!  And, yes, it’s absolutely free.

Saturday, May 2 from 8 am until 5 pm.

Boats will depart from Nashville Shores Waterpark to specific lake locations every 45 minutes; choose your departure time with the “Register Now” link on any page.

Our first cleanup in May 2008 was huge; the largest Nashville has ever seen! Together we’ve gifted more than 1,800 collective work-hours to the environment and filled six (6) of Waste Management’s commercial roll-off dumpsters with trash. Bottles, cans, plastics, coolers, tires, Styrofoam, chairs, BBQ grills, a full-sized traffic light, an office copier, a residential air conditioner, even a mannequin arm — all collected from Percy Priest Lake. Seriously, who takes a mannequin to the lake?Maxed out

All told, we’ve collected more trash than an average shopping mall produces in a month! Unfortunately, that’s also just 40% of the estimated surface trash at Percy Priest Lake. So please join us as we continue this very necessary public campaign against litter on Percy Priest Lake.
