In an effort to address citizen concerns about trash on the West Ashley Greenway and Bikeway, the Charleston Parks Conservancy is launching a volunteer litter cleanup program. In April, the Conservancy will kick off Cleanup in the Parks.
Beginning in April, the Conservancy will give away 100 cleanup kits with bags, gloves, safety vests and trash pickers. Volunteers can keep the cleanup kits and use them to remove trash from any local park or public greenspace.
The Conservancy also is partnering with like-minded organizations to host community cleanup events along the West Ashley Greenway and Bikeway. The kickoff cleanup will be on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22nd from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. In addition, Charleston Waterkeeper will host a morning cleanup along the West Ashley Bikeway hosted from 9 am to 11 am. Keep Charleston Beautiful will host its own cleanup on the Greenway from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. An additional cleanup event is also scheduled for Saturday, May 22nd.
Located west of the Ashley River and spanning a combined more than 10 miles, the West Ashley Greenway and Bikeway winds through tunnels of trees, residential neighborhoods and across marshlands. This linear park is widely used for walking, running or biking. The trail meets at the cross section of Savannah Highway and Wappoo Road.
“We are always listening to the community and seeking input on how we can improve Charleston’s parks and greenspaces,” said Rachel Barry, volunteer manager for the Conservancy. “After conducting a community survey about the West Ashley Greenway and Bikeway, it was clear that litter is a big concern. We are excited to give the community an opportunity to join us in cleaning up the trails and making them more enjoyable for everyone.”
