What does it take to get tons of trash out of Lake Allatoona?
Volunteers just like you. People who are willing to give a bit of their time and energy so that they — and others — can enjoy Lake Allatoona and be safe. Cleaning up Allatoona takes helping hands … and the organizers of the Great Lake Allatoona Cleanup!
The 2015 Great Lake Allatoona Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, September 12, 2015. We hope you’ll help.
Well over 4,000 of our generous friends donated a couple of hours each to remove FIVE TONS of trash and more than 300 tires during last year’s Great Lake Allatoona Cleanup.
Anybody can complain about junk in the lake. These fine folks did something about it!
Big victories require great teamwork. Here’s a list of some of the groups that pitched in to pitch trash out of Lake Allatoona:
- The Cartersville-Bartow Chamber of Commerce
- Wildlife Action
- The City of Kennesaw
- WellStar Health Care System
- US Army Corp of Engineers and
- Georgia Power.
We are all grateful for their support … but it’s the average, everyday volunteers who did the dirty work. They kindly picked up after people who don’t have the class to pick up after themselves.
This year’s Great Lake Allatoona Cleanup will be held on National Public Lands Day.
Be a hero. Donate a few hours with your neighbors to keep Lake Allatoona healthy and clean.
