Keep North Fulton Beautiful

Friday, October 11 From 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM (Sandy Springs)

Storm drain markers are an important way of informing the public not to dump oil, trash, paint, or other pollutants into roadside storm drains. Volunteers with the storm drain marking program affix specially designed labels to storm drains in neighborhoods, using provided materials. The labels warn residents that everything that enters a storm drain flows untreated into a nearby waterway. Volunteers will need one car for every 2-4 volunteers to complete this project. The opportunity for volunteers to assist with sorting recycling materials and general operation of the recycling center would still be open as well.
