The Brentwood Noon Rotary Club is calling all residents to help keep the city clean. On Saturday, Jan. 26, the rotary club will host another Little Harpeth River Cleanup event.
2019 marks the cleanup event’s fourteenth straight year, and the rotary club is searching for volunteers to help clean up portions of the river which flows through Brentwood for more than 10 miles.
In 2006, members of the Brentwood Rotary Club began an organized effort to clean up the Little Harpeth River out of concerns for its health.
“The service project has a direct benefit to all Brentwood citizens as well as our neighbors downstream,” the rotary club’s press release stated.
Little Harpeth River is divided into 12 sections, split up by the rotary club’s Environmental Projects Committee. Groups should meet at the Brentwood Library at 8:15 on Jan. 26 to register for cleanup, which will begin at 9 a.m. Light breakfast will be provided.
Residents need only bring themselves because Keep Williamson Beautiful — a volunteer division of the Williamson County Solid Waste Department — will provide trash bags, safety vests and trash removal gear to volunteers. Rotarians will be on hand for assistance and to dispose of trash at the end of cleanup.
Those interested in volunteering should contact Patrick Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
