Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Ends 2020 with Successful Cleanup, Recycling Events
As an environmentally-focused nonprofit that traditionally plays host to a slew of community cleanup and recycling events over the course of the year, COVID-19 has taken quite a toll on Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful’s event calendar. Finally, on November 7, Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful (GC&B) teamed up with Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources (DWR) to play host to its annual Great Gwinnett Wetlands event – seven months after its originally scheduled date. One week later, the nonprofit and its event partners at Gwinnett County Solid Waste Management hosted America Recycles Day at Coolray Field – a nationally-observed day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and buy recycled products.
“We were thrilled by the turnout at both events and were particularly appreciative of everyone’s commitment to remaining safe and socially distanced,” said Schelly Marlatt, Executive Director of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful.
