VOLUNTEER SAFETY

MESS would like to thank all of our volunteers for keeping our community tidy from litter. As always, we encourage all of our volunteers to hold their personal safety in the highest regard. During initial volunteer sign-up or at the beginning of an event, staff will cover safety guidelines.  

Please remember, these general safety rules:

 

  • Watch out & obey traffic laws.

  • Be careful of ongoing traffic.

  • Wear your high visibility vest while working near roadways.

  • Never cleanup dumped drywall. It could contain asbestos. Please contact us or the District of Mission Public Works department to have it cleaned up.

  • If you encounter a syringe, always use a proper sharps container. 

  • Avoid touching litter directly with your hands. Always use gloves or tongs.
