Participate in Fall Clean Up Day Sept. 26

Many look forward to the coziness of fall with the colorful fall foliage, apple picking, hayrides, pumpkin lattes and the cooler temperatures with a crisp in the air.

During this time of year when there is much to enjoy about the outdoors, The University of Toledo is inviting the UT community to assist in working toward a cleaner, greener campus.

A Fall Clean Up Day will be held 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26 when students, student organizations, faculty and staff are asked to volunteer for an hour to pick up trash and cigarette butts around campus. All participants will be supplied with trash bags and gloves and will receive a free t-shirt for volunteering from tables set up near the steps in front of the Student Union.

Last year’s Fall Clean Up Day brought out 291 students from more than 47 student organizations that removed 50 pounds of cigarette butts and trash from campus.

The 2012 event coincides with the Ohio College Health Association’s “Just Ask” campaign that encourages faculty, staff and students to remind smokers to use designated smoking areas on campus.

Fall Clean Up Day is organized by the Division of Student Affairs, Alcohol Tobacco and Other Drug Prevention Program, Eta Sigma Gamma, and SADD.
