NEFAR 1st annual Trash Challenge underway

June 10th, 2024 · Leave a Comment

This year, NEFAR members will be putting extra effort into keeping the waterways of Northeast Florida clean.

Trash will often find its way into our local waterways. So, this year, in addition to hosting its annual one-day Clean-up Northeast Florida Waterways events in both Putnam County and along the St. Johns River and its tributaries, the NEFAR Community Affairs Task Force will host its 1st annual NEFAR Trash Challenge. The Challenge is open to all NEFAR members, family, friends, and members of the public.

The challenge is underway and continues until midnight on Thursday, Aug. 1.

The Trash Challenge is a part of the larger Clean-up Florida Waters Initiative hosted by Florida Realtors. NEFAR’s goal is to collect as many 5-gallon buckets/bags of trash as possible leading up to its large community-wide waterways clean-up on Saturday, July 27.

The July 27 Northeast Florida Waterway Clean-up will take place at selected locations to be announced along the St. Johns River and its tributaries from 9 am – 11 am. The afterparty will begin at noon at the NEFAR Resource Center, 7801 Deercreek Club Road, Jacksonville.

All Waterways participants will be provided with a t-shirt, gloves, grabbers, and trash receptacles. For more information, click here.
