MCVIC sponsors DIY community cleanup

The Mathews Visitor Center bi-annually hosts its community cleanups, during which residents gather to pick up trash along the roadways of Mathews.

This year’s spring cleanup was canceled to prevent a group gathering in violation of the governor’s orders during the coronavirus pandemic, but MCVIC continues to encourage trash clean-ups by providing supplies to the community.

There has been a flurry of stay-at-home activities, said a press release, with residents picking up trash around the county, so MCVIC will be hosting a DIY cleanup campaign throughout May, or as long as supplies last.

MCVIC will provide trash bags, vests and nets for residents to have their own cleanups from home.
