Great American Cleanup™ Results
  The Great American Cleanup™ was a huge success in Nebraska again this spring! Events occurred during the
months of March April and May The final results include:
          communities participated
           events held (cleanups beautification efforts recycling reuse collections etc )
             volunteers participated
             volunteer hours donated
               pounds of bagged litter collected
                pounds of unbagged litter collected       trees planted
             flowers planted

   Also many communities took part in the new “Liberty Garden” project which consisted of
anything from a single boy scout planting flowers around the family’s flagpole to over         of an
entire community planting a “Liberty Garden” on their property Many communities who
participated planted red white and blue flowers in a public garden such as in a park along main
street or in front of the village or city office All Liberty Garden projects will honor the memory of
the many who perished in the tragic events of September of last year and reaffirm the principles
of freedom and liberty on which our country has been built It was wonderful to hear of the many
commemoration efforts undertaken across the state

   Everyone who lent a hand on a cleanup beautification event or recycling drive helped to make
this year’s Great American Cleanup™ a huge success! Thanks to the          volunteers involved in
these events the state is a cleaner more beautiful place to live and work!

   If your community or group is interested in participating in the      Great American Cleanup™
please call the Keep Nebraska Beautiful office for registration information Trash bags and posters
will be provided free to participants

Postal Service Increase Donations of Undelivered Items
  New U S Postal Service regulations that went into effect October           will make it easier for
the Postal Service to donate undelivered product samples and other undelivered items to food banks
and homeless shelters The new regulations should also increase the number of items that are
donated The Reuse Development Organization Inc (ReDO) and the National Waste Prevention
Coalition along with the King County (Washington) Solid Waste Division played a major role in
developing these regulations with the Postal Service Staff and board members with these
organizations solicited and provided input from around the country wrote the first draft of the
proposed regulations and worked directly with top Postal Service environmental officials to help
move the regulations through a long process

   "These changes will help many Americans who need food and basic supplies "
said Bill Ewing executive director of the Maryland Food Bank in Baltimore and
co chair of the ReDO board of directors "We're very pleased the Postal Service
has taken this step to streamline and improve these regulations and we're glad
that we could help them with this "

   The Postal Service has estimated that U S post offices get stuck with up to
         tons every year of undelivered product samples alone not to mention other
undelivered products and items The new regulations will make it much easier for all undelivered
items food toothpaste shampoo diapers and many other items to be distributed to people who
need them For example in the past undelivered unopened toiletries and over the counter drugs
were not supposed to be donated at all The new regulations specify that these items should be
donated to food banks shelters or other non profits

  ReDO and America's Second Harvest will work in partnership with their affiliates and the Postal

Litter Free School Zone Program
   The school year is well under way and with it many schools across Nebraska have a plan in place
to keep their school grounds clean For numerous schools in Nebraska that plan includes being part
of Keep Nebraska Beautiful’s Litter Free School Zone program Through the program schools agree
to check the campus grounds weekly and remove litter that is found Each quarter they mail a very
simple report to the Keep Nebraska Beautiful office reporting the results of their efforts Each
participating school receives an aluminum sign to place on their grounds that proclaims “This is a
Litter Free School Zone” If your school is interested in receiving more information or that would like
to be a part of this valuable program please contact the Keep Nebraska Beautiful office at
      or complete a registration form on line at www knb org/litter_free html
   Below is a list of the schools that are participating for the       school year Many schools
are returning from last year and several new ones have been added already this school year We
appreciate their willingness to help keep Nebraska beautiful!
