Cleanup Challenge

We are thrilled to announce our 2nd annual Cleanup Challenge, which will take place in April. The Cleanup Challenge is a yearly event that Keep Soddy-Daisy Beautiful host’s during a one-week period from April 17 – April 23. This coincides with Earth Day, which is on April 22. During that week, we ask locals to form teams and go out and pick up trash around their community. It’s a great opportunity for people to get outside, get some exercise, and do something good for their community. After the event, we will award prizes to winning teams and have a celebration to thank everyone for their hard work. We believe that this event not only helps clean up our community but also builds community spirit and pride.

Last year, the event was a great success, with 17 teams competing and nearly 500 people between them. We collected 164 bags of trash and 175 larger items such as tires from various parts of Soddy-Daisy, including Lovell Rd, Dallas Hollow, Sequoyah Access, W Ridge Trail Rd, Mountain Rd, Montlake Rd, North Chick Creek Trailhead, Lee Pike, Mt. Tabor, Frontage Rd, Dayton Pike, Durham St and Daisy Elementary campus.

Our partners last year included the City of Soddy-Daisy, Public Works and Police, TVA, Lyndhurst Foundation, and the Soddy-Daisy Fire Fighters Association.

This event is open to all residents in Hamilton County, TN and the surrounding areas. We invite you, your family, friends, school, club, church or business to compete for prizes to see which team can cleanup the most trash in Hamilton County.
