Masks On, Litter Gone! Volunteer Event Information

River Network, in partnership with Ball Corporation and a number of local organizations, is thrilled to announce “Masks On, Litter Gone” campaign! Together, we are raising awareness of the benefits of recycling while creating opportunities for community members to restore their local waterways. We believe every consumer has the power to improve our environment by choosing recyclable packing over disposables. Learn more about the benefits of choosing infinitely recyclable aluminum here.

From June 15-28, locals in Phoenix, AZ, Ft. Atkinson, WI, and Findlay, OH, can join the #BallLitterHaul challenge and work to pick up litter in their local communities – all while wearing masks and following social distancing guidelines. Explore the info below on how to take part and follow the hashtags #MasksOnLitterGone and #BallLitterHaul on social media to stay up to date on the latest.
