Fall Great Islands Clean-up Recap

What a great day! On Saturday, September 30th, 34 hearty souls joined Orcas Recycling Services (ORS) to help with the second annual Fall Great Islands Cleanup (GICU).

The GICU started in Spring of 2014, and added a Fall cleanup last year in 2016. This year is the first year that all the major islands and Shaw participated in the Fall Clean up. On Orcas, we picked up 540 pounds of trash form almost 50 miles of roads and beaches!

If you’d like to get involved with the next clean-up, please join our volunteer list, watch the GICU Facebook page, or set your calendar for April 2018 and contact ORS at that time. The Spring clean-up usually takes place on the Saturday closest to Earth Day.
