The Rockdale Community Ambassadors is hosting its second “Trash Bash” clean-up event on Saturday, June 9, weather permitting. The event will take place in Zone 2, the Windridge and Queenie Woods Neighborhoods, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The meet-up location will be at Pine Log Park, 1451 Pine Log Road, Conyers. If weather conditions change, the clean-up will be held on Saturday, June 16.
Chairman Oz Nesbitt, Sr. created the Rockdale Community Ambassadors program to promote Rockdale County in a positive light. Within the Trash Bash campaign, there will be four separate community clean-up events, each hosted in four different parts of the county throughout the year. The dates and locations for each event are as follows:
- May 12 – Zone 1 -Irwin Bridge Area
- June 9 – Zone 2 – Windridge and Queenie Woods Neighborhoods
- August 11 – Zone 3 – Johnson Park Area
- October 6 – Zone 4 – Ogelsby Bridge Area
Three ambassadors will serve as the lead contact for their zones:
- Daniel Whidby – Zone 1 and Zone 3
- Jerry Sheppard – Zone 2
- Jessica Ivey – Zone 4
These ambassadors will act as liaisons for their zones and will be a point of contact for the residents in those areas after the clean-ups are done. They will notify code enforcement about any complaints or concerns they hear.
Each clean-up event will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and food will be provided by Papa John’s and Kroger.
