On Sunday, July 31st, the City of Palm Coast hosted its third Keep Palm Coast Clean event.

Volunteers gathered at the Public Works Department early Sunday morning where they received trash bags, gloves, water, and briefing instructions before heading out to collect trash from various roadways and parks throughout Palm Coast.

During this event, volunteers collected over 40 bags of trash equivalent to more than 600 pounds of debris. This does not include heavy miscellaneous items collected such as a discarded basketball hoop, sheets of plywood, construction materials, lumber, and tires.

The Keep Palm Coast Clean – Love Where You Live event was organized by the City of Palm Coast’s Public Works Department. This litter clean-up initiative encourages residents to help pick up trash in the community. It protects the environment and keeps the city looking beautiful. 

“I want to thank everyone who came out and participated in this great event,” Public Works Workforce Data Analyst Benny Cope said. “We had more than 25 volunteers come together and help Keep Palm Coast Clean and help keep our City looking beautiful. I’m very thankful for the communities’ involvement and look forward to planning the next event later this year.”
