Pickup, Paint, Plant Community Cleanup Event

GRAND TERRACE – The City of Grand Terrace will co-host a special Pickup, Paint, Plant Community Cleanup event with the Foundation of Grand Terrace, on Saturday, April 24, 2021, from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m., beginning at 22441 Barton Road. Volunteers will have a variety of opportunities to pitch in and help keep Grand Terrace beautiful by picking up trash, re-painting arterial walls, planting new trees, and learn gardening tips from Home Depot Community Gardeners. Children are welcome to volunteer with an accompanying adult. Residents are invited to join in the festivities of spring by signing up to volunteer for one of the many activities. Volunteers will be treated to a sack lunch at Grand Terrace Fitness Park, courtesy of Woody’s Classic Grill. Earth Day Posters developed by Grand Terrace Youth will also be on display at Grand Terrace Fitness Park.

The Grocery Outlet parking lot (22441 Barton Road) on the corner of Barton and Mount Vernon, will serve as home base for volunteer check-ins at 8 a.m. Coffee and donuts will be served as volunteers receive their assigned stations for the day. The City shuttle will help transport volunteers to their stations. As in years past, teams of community volunteers will disperse around the City for trash collection. This year, another group of volunteers will be assigned to re-paint sections of wall around the City in need of fresh paint.  Additional volunteers will be assigned to plant trees along Mount Vernon Avenue and Main Street. All volunteers will convene at Fitness Park at the end of the day for lunch from 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Also available to residents on the day of the Pickup, Plant, Paint Community Cleanup event is, free mulch and compost. Mulch and compost, provided by Burrtec Waste Industries, will be available by pickup only at the southwest corner of Canal and Mount Vernon. The City encourages all residents to get involved this year by volunteering in the community and by improving the appearance of their own yards this spring.
