Join Our Annual Campus Clean Up Day – Help Sheridan Be Zero Waste!

Spring has arrived! We are organizing a campus cleanup event in all three campuses again this year. To avoid the rainy weather forecasted for Thursday, April 20, we are rescheduling it to Friday, April 21.

We are looking for more volunteers to join us for this event. As a volunteer, you will help us pick up litter that has accumulated throughout the year on the trails, in the woodlands and the peripheral areas around the campus property.

Everyone, including staff, faculty, and students, is welcome to volunteer. This event not only helps the environment but also provides an opportunity for participants to get active and meet other members of the Sheridan community. It will be a fun event and you may even receive a group award!

 

What to expect?

At the start time of the event in each campus, i.e. 12 p.m. on April 21 we will provide directions on where to pick up the litter and safety instructions. Gloves and bags will be handed out. Waste will be collected in three types of plastic bags.

Participants will be encouraged to go out in small groups.

Based on your availability, you can participate from 30 minutes up to more than an hour. We will wrap up the event at 1:30 p.m.

  1. Collecting the heaviest weight
  2. Finding the most unusual waste item
