All volunteers for the cleanup must sign in and will meet at the Little Beach Park upper parking lot at 9 a.m. on Saturday. Once signed in and outfitted with necessary gear, each volunteer will be assigned a specific area to work for litter pickup.

Eco-friendly bags

In lieu of standard orange garbage bags, Land Title and Vail Mountain Coffee Roasters have donated eco-friendly bags this year that biodegrate exponentially faster than the plastic bags.
