Help keep Goochland beautiful! Goochland County will be holding a Countywide Litter Clean Up Day on Saturday, November 14th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Join your neighbors as we pick up garbage, litter & debris from our roads.

The Countywide Litter Clean Up Day is the second of many future events and includes three staging locations focusing on the specific areas listed below.

Byrd Elementary School (2704 Hadensville Fife Road)

Addressing Hadensville Fife Road

Central High Cultural and Educational Complex (2748 Dogtown Road)

Addressing Dogtown Road and Whitehall Road 

Goochland County Fire Rescue Station # 3 – Centerville (52 Broad Street Road)

Addressing areas along Broad Street Road (Rt. 250) in the Centerville Village and along Manakin Road & Hockett Road

The November 14th Countywide Litter Clean Up Day is being held in conjunction with Goochland’s America Recycles Day Celebration which involves a free tire amnesty tire recycling and document shredding event.  The free tire amnesty tire recycling and document shredding event will occur from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Old Fairground Lot located at 2744 Fairground Road. 

Goochland County Department of General Services is coordinating the clean up and asks that volunteers pre-register if possible, but it is not required.  Citizens can register by contacting the Department of General Services main office at (804) 556-5340 or by email at litterfreegoochland@goochlandva.us

Volunteers may also register and participate at a neighborhood (secondary) level outside the areas above.  The County will note their own areas of focus and include their participation in our statistics as we report out on the Countywide Litter Clean Up Day.  Volunteers working at the neighborhood level will need to come and pick up their materials on the morning of November 14th at one the designated locations above.

Participants should wear solid shoes, a face mask, social distance and bring heavy duty gloves if they have them.  The County will provide face masks, trash bags, vests, hand wipes, and trash grabbers.  Come help keep Goochland beautiful!

All participants, whether at the locations above or participating at a neighborhood (secondary) level, are encouraged to wear a face mask and practice social distancing throughout the Countywide Litter Clean Up Day event.
