Step 1: Call Us At 406-582-3203
A month or more before your event
A simple phone call sets up your Cleanup Bozeman event. Just be ready to let us know when and where you’d like to pick up litter (we have ideas if you need them), and how many volunteers you think you’ll have.
Step 2: Tell Your Group
A few weeks (or more) before your event
Fire up Facebook, pin up the bulletin board, and spread the word that you need your group to roll up their sleeves. Download the Communication Guide for ideas on getting the word out. You can use our flyer/poster template and logos too help spread the word.
Step 3: Get The Kits
A few days before your event
Call 406-582-3203 to arrange for drop off and pickup of your Cleanup Bozeman kit (must be within Bozeman city limits).
Your kit will include:
- Volunteer vests
- Yellow trash bags (and ties)
- Green recycling bags (and ties)
- Hand sanitizer
- Instructions for cleanup
All in a sustainable, weatherproof container (must be returned along with the volunteer vests, hand sanitizer, and any unused materials)
Step 4: Clean It Like You Mean It
On your event day (or week)
Get your crew suited up with vests, gloves, and bags from the kit. Gather trash and recycling into bags in your designated area, then leave them on the boulevard. We’ll come through to pick up your trash and recycling bags as part of our regular neighborhood trash collection.
Step 5: Remit The Kit
After your event
Give us a call at 406-582-3203 and we will pick up your kit and unused materials. Or bring your kit back to the City for a sincere thank you from our team (and so the next group can volunteer).
