If you’re concerned about the litter and trash you see in your community or neighborhood, why not start a litter pickup organization? There are several ways to go about this, but one of the most important things is that you inform as many people as possible about your efforts, so that you can truly make an impact.
How to Recruit
Recruiting people to help with your litter pickup organization is as simple as going door to door, especially if you know the people in your neighborhood well. You can also hang up signs around the community and include your contact information, so that people who are interested can get in touch with you and assist you in your efforts to clean up the neighborhood. Facebook is another way to let friends and family know about your litter pickup organization. If you want to have a meeting to discuss your objectives, let your social media followers know the details of the meeting and ask them to confirm their attendance online. Once you let attendees know that you’re working with Arcmate, you may find that many members of the community with associate your efforts with good, quality work because of the Arcmate name.
Once you’ve informed people about your anti-litter efforts, you’ll need to compose a mission state and a UVP, or unique value proposition. Those who are working with you need to know exactly what you plan to do to eliminate and prevent litter in the community. If you mention that you have a trusted name like Arcmate on your side, those in the community will know that you’re using quality reachers & grabbers to get the job done. This can help to jumpstart your efforts and make your litter pickup organization more reputable.
Finally, at your actual meeting, make sure you’ve got reachers & grabbers available for everyone to use. You can also customize the event to give people even more incentive to attend. For instance, the kickoff event can be a barbecue or block party, which is a great way for your neighbors to get to know each other while bettering the community. Or, you can organize a game of baseball or football after your cleanup efforts to make the day especially memorable.
