- Use a trash grabbing tool if possible.
- Clean up in the direction of oncoming traffic and closely supervise children.
- If you find a needle, syringe, or any drug paraphernalia, DO NOT TOUCH. Contact the police with location info.
- Immediately after the cleanup, wash your hands and arms and change your clothes. Also, do a tick check.
- Do not pick up trash in poison ivy unless you have a grabbing tool; if you are unfamiliar with what it looks like, please find a photo online.

Leave your filled bags on the side of the road at your registered location and the Highway Department / DPW will pick them up.
