CUMMING - The Keep Forsyth County Beautiful (KFCB) Mobile Trash Unit (MTU) initiative is gearing up for its third year and program organizers are once again seeking volunteers to participate in the litter cleanup events throughout the year.
Launched in 2010, this program targets roadside litter in Forsyth County. Two different opportunities exist for citizens to get involved with the MTU litter cleanups -- the Family Mobile Trash Unit and the High School Mobile Trash Unit.
The Family MTU cleanups are designed for volunteers of all ages and groups of all types. It provides a monthly opportunity for volunteers to get out and make a difference in addressing litter issues around the county. This MTU will meet every third Sunday at 3 p.m. Locations for cleanups will change each month based on need and will be announced to participants the week prior to the cleanup via email.
The High School MTU focuses on providing high school students with monthly service opportunities and a chance to have a direct impact on the beauty of Forsyth County. This group will meet every second Thursday at 4 p.m. Locations for cleanups will change each month based on need and will be announced to participants the week prior to the cleanup also by email.
