The Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS) Anti-Litter Program hosted the 18th Annual Great American Litter Pick Up Event at multiple locations throughout the City of San José from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 22, 2017. The event had 2,959 volunteers, of all ages, committed to Beautify San José by ridding our streets, neighborhoods and our creeks of litter and its harmful effects. All City Council Districts hosted events that beautified parks, neighborhoods and celebrated with volunteers. The Great American Litter Pick up Event is a volunteer opportunity where people can, for one day, make a huge impact in their community by picking up litter in their neighborhoods. This event is made possible through the collaborative efforts of the Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services Department’s (PRNS), Anti-Litter Program, the Mayor and Council Offices and the Environmental Services Department. Residents are encouraged to continue their efforts to “Beautify San Jose” by volunteering on a regular basis with the Anti-Litter Program.
