Community Litter Cleanup: Litter Dash

The City of Sioux City invites residents, businesses and community groups to coordinate a team for the Sioux City Litter Dash, a litter cleanup, to help beautify our community and reduce the impact of litter on our environment. Working together with several city departments, these efforts will have a visible impact on our community.

Litter negatively impacts our environment, the aesthetic appeal of our community, and even economic development. By volunteering for this event, you send a strong anti-litter message and will receive recognition for your commitment to improve our community.

Your group will designate a team captain (the person with whom we will communicate) and form a team of at least 10 people. This team will join others at noon on Friday, April 21, for a complimentary lunch and volunteer rally at the Long Lines Family Rec Center. The team will receive collection materials including gloves and bags for trash and recyclable items, and will then go to their assigned location for the afternoon.

In case of inclement weather, your team captain will be notified by City staff and Litter Dash will be rescheduled to Friday, April 28, 2017.

We look forward to working with the community towards a better Sioux City on April 21, 2017!
