We are Andrew Brinn and Megan Fogel and we are excited to be interning with Keep Columbus Beautiful as well as leading the "Pick It Up Bucks" initiative. This website will be a great tool to spread the word about litter as well as a resource for those that are ready to help make a difference. Keep Columbus Beautiful will have various volunteer opportunities this fall if you or your organization would like to get involved in a litter clean up or community event. We also have the tools and supplies for any group, person or organization that would like to do their own cleanup. Feel free to contact Keep Columbus Beautiful at (614) 645-2421 to reserve these supplies.
One of our big initiatives this fall will be trying to get people to clean up their litter on game days. Discourage your fellow football fans from throwing trash on the ground. While it may not seem harmful at the time, this litter remains in our yards and on our streets well after the celebrations have ended. If you are planning on having a party at your house or a tailgate remember to give your guests places to throw their trash. It is going to take effort and awareness on everyone's part to reduce litter around our beautiful campus but we truly believe it is a much needed change that has been a long time coming. We are really excited about this fall and hope to accomplish some big things. Just remember these four words....PICK IT UP, BUCKS!
