Help Marshall County look the part of having been designated Indiana Stellar Communities of the Year!
Join your neighbors, friends, youth groups, clubs, and colleagues to help build a sense of pride as we work together throughout our great hometowns in cleaning up litter.
Starting April 16th and finishing on Arbor Day, April 30th, the Marshall County Crossroads team, Marshall County Solid Waste Management District, along with community leaders, are challenging residents to cleanup our community.
When: April 16 - 30, 2021
Where: Anywhere in Marshall County
How: Grab trash bags from home and head to the nearest litter pile. Only bagged trash may be brought to the Marshall County Solid Waste Management District, 1900 Walter Glaub Drive in Plymouth during regular business hours.
Please note: the Marshall County Solid Waste Management District is a recycling depot not a waste facility. The trash collected at their site is temporary during this campaign and intended to be for litter found in public places. Please use the designated dumpster only. If possible, please bag up beverage containers such as water bottles, pop bottles, and aluminum cans separately to be dropped off at the Recycle Depot.
Yard Signs Displayed Throughout Marshall County
If you are interested in displaying a yard sign, please stop by Bowen Printing to pick one up. Signs should be returned to the Recycle Depot at the end of the challenge to be used in the future.
Thank you Bowen Printing for the donation of our signs!

There are several cleanup initiatives happening in Marshall County this month. Help us share and encourage those efforts. If your community or organization is hosting a cleanup, please send us the information so we can add it to our communication platforms.

Litter is one of those things that you notice only when it's there. When it's not there, we take clean spaces for granted!

One of the scariest things about plastic litter is that it will never go away--it just gets increasingly smaller. The chemicals that make up plastic can enter soil and groundwater, then eventually be taken up by livestock or the plants we eat. We are all walking around with plastic and its related chemicals in our bodies.
