Please follow the CDC and the Alliance of the Great Lakes guidelines of a group of 10 people or less.
In addition to wearing gloves and practicing social distancing, all participants are asked to follow these safety guidelines during their clean-up efforts:
1. Wear a safety vest or a bright colored shirt, clothing that covers arms and legs, and closed-toed shoes or boots.
2. Look all around you! Most trash gets blown around and ends up in rock and crevices or under trees and shrubs.
3. Stay at least five feet from the edge of the road. When on or near a roadway, whenever possible face the on-coming traffic. Do not cross in front of traffic. Stay alert.
4. Be mindful of water conditions. If along a creek or stream, use caution. Follow all safety alerts related to Red Flag conditions along Lake Superior.
5. Avoid movements that will distract passing drivers or other volunteers.
6. Do not wear headsets which could prevent you from hearing others or distracting you from other hazards.
7. Do not attempt to retrieve items that may risk injury.
8. Drink plenty of fluids– take breaks– avoid overexertion. Use proper lifting and bending techniques.
6. Stop work in inclement weather.
9. If you find hypodermic needles, please bring a plastic bottle to the needle, then place it in the bottle and seal. Keep this separate from your trash. If you need us to pick up a needle or if you are not comfortable picking up hypodermic needles, please call the Needle Hotline at 218-730-4001. For removal, you can also call the Superior Fire Department at (715) 394-0227. After hours, contact 911.
