What is a Haywood Road Clean Up Day?
A morning where volunteers work to pick up trash and recycling along the Haywood Road corridor with the support of Asheville GreenWorks. We alternate between the east end and west end of the road.

How do you participate?

  1. RSVP, above, especially if you are bringing multiple people with you
  2. Show up at Westville Pub at 10am
  3. Eat some breakfast
  4. Gear up with gloves, safety vest, bags, and tools
  5. Head out to pick up trash and recycling along the corridor
  6. Come back to Westville Pub to return gloves, vests, tools and pick up your ice cream coupon or enjoy a free beer!

Is this a family-friendly event?
Yes, although not recommended for very small children. Haywood Road is a busy street and it is important that you and your children stay alert and safe throughout the clean up. An adult signature on the Asheville GreenWorks waiver form is required.

How long is the clean up?
Generally volunteers are out 1-1.5 hours, so you should expect to finish up between 11:30am and noon.

Who is providing breakfast?
Westville Pub, Sunny Point Café, and Biscuit Head are donating delicious breakfast items for volunteers.

Should you bring anything?
Asheville GreenWorks will supply gloves (adult sizes), safety vests, and trash bags for everyone. They’ll also have a limited supply of tools. Madden’s Ace Hardware donated 10 trash grabbers to WABA, so those will also be available, as well as some WABA owned dust pans and brooms.

If you have your own grabber, a flat-headed shovel, or industrial broom, we recommend you bring it.

What happens at the end?
Come back to Westville Pub and return items you borrowed from Asheville GreenWorks, or WABA to receive a coupon good for a scoop of ice cream at The Hop Ice Cream Cafe or The Hop West! If you are 21+ you can enjoy a tasty beverage. Details on beer sponsor day of event.

The Westville Pub would of course welcome you to order up some lunch. Your support of the businesses that support these clean up days is greatly appreciated.
