Ways a Business, Club, or Individual Can Participate:
• CleanSweep volunteers: Have your business, clubs, teams, family, and friends help clean ER streets and parks the day of the event. Volunteers (who must be at least 10 years old or have completed fourth grade) will meet in the Community Center (Eyer Building, corner of Main and West Commercial) the morning of the event. If you're interested, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
• CleanSweep scrap metal collection: The ER Parks Committee will again be collecting any scrap metal ("from a coat hanger to a wrecked car and everything in between!") in the Eyer Building parking lot during the event. This project helps maintain and replace the trees in our four parks! For more information (or to arrange for a larger pickup, or if you're unavailable to drop off that morning), contact Mark McDermott at email@example.com or 586-7756.
• Sponsorship opportunities are available! Sponsors' logos will be displayed on the Website and numerous promotional materials. Four levels, from $150 to $5,000, are available; please click here for details.
