[ARCHIVED] Happy Earth Day James City County!

Norge ES Earth Day 2018

In honor of Earth Day, community leaders, citizen volunteers and County staff have been joining hands all month long to showcase and protect our beautiful local environment.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Dozens of litter cleanups along roadsides, parks, schools, neighborhoods and illegal dump sites as part of the 41st Annual Countywide Spring Cleanup
  • Educating the public on the importance of waste minimization and creation of the the Keep James City County Beautiful “3Rs Committee” 
  • Public outreach at a variety of community events promoting “all things green”
  • Promoting environmental advocacy work in our local schools
  • Public speaking on the importance of recycling and upcoming changes to curbside recycling
  • Advocating for the regional “Keep it Beachy Clean Straw Free for Earth Day Campaign”

There is still time to do your part and volunteer for the Great American Cleanup on Saturday May 4th! Volunteers are needed for cleanup efforts at the Grove Community Garden and at the Lake Matoaka litter cleanup.

For more information on any of the above or to find out how you can lead by example contact Dawn Oleksy at 757-603-0875 or email
