Litter Clean Up and Booth Registration

Help make Mason City Sparkle!  It is the wonderful volunteers of Mason City who help clean our community that make Mason City what it is!

What: Earth Day Litter cleanup around Mason City

Where: Around your business, neighborhood, or in your favorite park.  You chose your cleanup spot!

How: Register your team online or contact Mary at (641) 421-3372 or email at Better reserve your area quick while your section is still available!

When: Anytime during the weeks of April 18-May 2.

Details: People of all ages are invited to come. Bags and rubber gloves are available at the Volunteer Coordinator’s Office in City Hall before cleanup day. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own heavy-duty work gloves and wear appropriate clothing depending on the weather.

Call Mary at (641) 421-3372 or email her at with the location of the bags and we'll get them picked up, or bring them along to our Earth Day Festival on April 25th 10 am-noon at Lime Creek Nature Center where we will have a sanitation truck available for trash disposal.

A metal bin will be provided at the festival so we ask that you separate out those items and place them in the metal bin. Metal is a resource that can be continuously recycled into different items. Feel free to bring your metal from home as all proceeds go to benefit the Mason City Earth Day Committee.

A prize will be awarded to the team that finds the most unusual trash item, and brings it along to the festival to be entered in the contest.
