Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce
Off Rt. 14, at the corner of King St. & Pierson
Crystal Lake IL
The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce and the Crystal Lake Park District organize this free event every April, in conjunction with Earth Day.
It is held just outside the Chamber's office, in McCormick Park. We invite families, individuals, businesses, and organizations to join us on Saturday, April 20th.
Volunteers will meet at 8:30 in the morning at the Chamber, enjoy some breakfast treats, and then are given their tools for the day: gloves and garbage bags.
Groups are dispatched throughout Crystal Lake and Lakewood to clean up the trash left behind from winter.
The collection and recycling efforts wrap up by 11:30 am, and then all the volunteers are treated to a hot lunch.
Community Clean Up Day is a family friendly, "rain or shine" event. There is no minimum age restriction, if accompanied by a parent.
Pre-registration is not required.
Old, torn and worn out U.S. flags will also be collected, to be retired in a dignified manner according to the rules of the Flag Code.
