Volunteers began gathering at the Public Works Department early Saturday morning where they received trash bags, and briefing instructions before heading out to collect trash from various roadways and parks in Palm Coast.

During this event, volunteers collected over 66 bags of trash equivalent to 1,100 pounds of trash. This includes heavy misc. items such as chairs, power bed, crates, car parts and tires.  

The Keep Palm Coast Clean – Love Where You Live event is organized by the City of Palm Coast Public Works Department. This litter clean-up initiative encourages residents to help pick up trash in the community. It protects our environment and keeps our city looking beautiful. 

“I want to thank everyone who came out and participated in this great event,” Public Works Workforce Data Analyst, Benny Cope. “We had more than 60 volunteers come together and help Keep Palm Coast Clean and help keep our City looking beautiful. I’m very thankful for the communities’ involvement and look forward to planning the next event later this year.”
