Keep Lake Beautiful to Host Community-wide Cleanup in Sorrento

SORRENTO, Fla.  — Keep Lake Beautiful (KLB) is inviting volunteers to participate in a community cleanup, sponsored by WCA, from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 22 at two Sorrento locations: East Lake Community Park at 24809 Wallick Road and Sorrento Park at 31535 Church St.

Residents are encouraged to clean their homes and yards and dispose of excess trash, passenger car tires, and any items that could hold water and become a breeding ground for mosquitoes that carry viruses. Lake County’s Household Hazardous Waste Mobile Unit will also be on-site at the East Lake Community Park location to accept household hazardous waste, paint, fuel and more.

KLB will provide gloves, safety vests, trash bags and water to those helping to clean the community. Volunteers must be 16 years or older or be accompanied by an adult. Participants are encouraged to wear proper attire, sunscreen, and insect repellent.

Since its launch, KLB has hosted or partnered on more than two dozen projects including community and waterway cleanups, roadside litter pickups, neighborhood, and school beautification events, tree plantings and household hazardous waste collection events.

KLB is seeking motivated community-minded volunteers to mobilize within their neighborhoods to spread KLB’s mission of beautifying Lake County by engaging the community. To register as a volunteer or to become a sponsor of future events, visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/KLB, call 352-253-1660, or sign up at the event.

Residents are also encouraged to use the county’s Litter Reporter website http://gis.lakecountyfl.gov/crowdsource/ to help pinpoint areas in need of a cleanup. The Litter Reporter is viewable on mobile devices and desktop computers, and lets users submit data about an area of concern and attach corresponding photos. Keep Lake Beautiful will monitor submissions and propose cleanup efforts and community events as needed.
