Registration is underway for the Keep Conyers-Rockdale Beautiful (KCRB) Rivers Alive countywide cleanup on Saturday, Oct. 15, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Check in, cleaning supply assignments and other activities will be headquartered at Pine Log Park Pavilion, 1500 GA Highway 138, Conyers.

Created by the Department of Natural Resource’s Environmental Protection Division and Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation, Rivers Alive targets waterways as part of an ongoing statewide campaign to clean and preserve more than 70,000 miles of Georgia’s rivers and streams.

Volunteers in Rockdale will support the effort locally by helping prevent the pollution of the County’s rivers, streams, creeks, lakes, and wetlands. KCRB encourages civic and neighborhood groups, businesses, Boy and Girl Scout troops, churches, youth groups, individuals, and families to participate.

Last year, more than 200 volunteers, including nearly 100 youths, removed tons of garbage and more than 14 tires from several locations throughout the County, as well as covered several miles of waterways.

Cleanup supplies will be provided and volunteers will receive free lunch and a T-shirt for participation until noon while supplies last as a thank you.

Property owners in unincorporated Rockdale who volunteer are eligible to receive a 5 percent credit on their next Rockdale County storm water utility bill.

Registration forms are available online at www.rockdalecountyga.gov and can be sent to kcrb@rockdalecountyga.gov, faxed to 770-278-8914 or dropped off in-person at 958 Milstead Ave., Conyers.

The deadline to sign up is Monday, Oct. 10.

For questions about Rivers Alive, please email kcrb@rockdalecountyga.gov or call 770-278-7052.
