INSTRUCTIONS FOR PARTICIPANTS
WHEN AND AT WHAT TIME?
The Big Clean-up is going to take place on Sunday, April 22, from 9:00 – 15:00 simultaneously all over Latvia!
WHERE SHOULD I CLEAN-UP?
Ask the Coordinator of the Big Clean-up of nearest municipality for your place of clean-up, or find it on homepage www.talkas.lv! There you will find all officially registered clean-up locations, organized by the most active municipalities, educational institutions, organizations, companies and volunteers. Choose the nearest and most interesting clean-up and join it on April 22! There is a responsible person for each of registered clean-up locations. Write-down this person’s phone number to contact if necessary!
WHERE CAN I GET THE TRASH BAGS?

WHERE TO LEAVE THE FULL BAGS?

WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND ABOUT SUSPICIOUS GARBAGE AND DEAD ANIMALS?
If you noticed the expended syringes, bottles with unknown liquids, accumulators or any other hazardous garbage during your clean-up – don’t touch them! Notify the responsible person of locations of these objects! If a dead animal is detected during your clean-up in nature or in town territory – don’t touch it either, but notify the corresponding municipality. If you have noticed more than two injured or dead animals, notify the operating department by calling 112.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Make sure to wear work gloves! We recommend to put on long pants and long-sleeved T-shirt or wind-jacket. Put on closed footwear with hard and thick sole to avoid wounding by unnoticed glass or sharp object. Put on a cap or scarf. This kind of clothing will also protect you from acarus stings!
WHAT SHOULD I TAKE ALONG?
Make sure to take along your work gloves, your family members, friends, relatives, colleagues, neighbours and most importantly – love of work!
SEE YOU ON APRIL 22!
P.S. We invite you not only collecting garbage during the big clean-up, but also doing other nice things – set trees, create amazing flower-beds, landscape backyards, make birdhouses, repair fences, small benches, small bridges etc. Let’s live in beautiful surroundings! We wish you and others having a good time! Latvia to be green!
