Clean Up Green Up
Sunday, September 29th, 2019
Traverse City Pit Spitters Ball Park
The annual community-wide recycle, repurpose and reuse event provides an opportunity for locals to divert, from area landfills, items that have salvageable components or further use, and bring them to a central collection point for proper processing. The Clean Up and Green Up event is free for residents of Grand Traverse and all neighboring counties.
Since curbside recycling is becoming widely available and receptacles for collection of paper, plastics and glass are strategically placed through the area, the Clean Up Green Up event focuses on assisting residents to remove from their waste stream items which are difficult or costly to recycle or are not accepted at the curbside.
Michigan Green Consortium reminds residents to consult the Clean Up Green Up Facebook page or event-related website for specific details on the items that will be collected at the September 29th event. A sitemap, which can be downloaded from the website, helps residents load their vehicles so that unloading is efficient – a feature vital to a smooth event.

Michigan Green Consortium is an all-volunteer public charity, declared tax-exempt under Section 501c3 of the Internal Revenue Code. Established in 2008, Michigan Green Consortium’s mission is to foster the general knowledge of sustainable practices and to promote the application of sound environmental stewardship through education and community events designed to lessen the burden on government.
