Some groups may come across existing living spaces in or near your cleanup site. Our goal is to assist in cleaning up the area only where appropriate and not to disturb active homes. If you come across someone experiencing homelessness, or a living site, please take the following actions:
● Clean areas in groups of three people or more.
● If a person experiencing homlessness is at the site, introduce yourself and explain the purpose of the cleanup and what you are doing there today. Ask if they would like any unwanted items removed and assist with cleaning up such objects.
● If no one is on the premises, only take what is clearly waste and do not remove any clothing, living structures or tents, cooking implements, etc. If you are unsure, leave the items by the living space.
● If appropriate, be prepared to share resources, such as information for shelters in your local community.
