2019 Community Clean Up – Inclement Weather Did Not Stop Us!
The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce, partnering with the Crystal Lake Park District, hosted our annual Community Clean Up Day on Saturday, April 27th, 2019. In spite of the rain and snow showers, we had over 100 volunteers brave the elements to clean up our parks. Crystal Lake is absolutely a good place to live! Congratulations to Snap-On Tools for winning the Corporate Challenge!
This year, the Park District-Nature Center distributed Milkweed Seeds to help sustain monarchs and other butterflies. Many from the community stopped by to recycle electronics and shred documents. Home of the Sparrow collected gently used clothing and small appliances.
The Crystal Lake Police Department collected one box of prescription drugs totaling 17 pounds; Achieve Footwear collected 82 pairs of shoes to be repurposed; AMS Store & Shred collected 2,517 pounds of paper and documents and Douglas Automotive collected 8 tires and 20 gallons of used motor oil.
