CLEMSON — Volunteers will come together to help clean up the Clemson University campus Wednesday on the annual Solid Green Day.

solidgreenlogoStudents, faculty and staff donate about an hour of their time to pick up trash on campus and the surrounding areas.

Volunteers will meet in front of Mell Hall between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Solid Green T-shirts will be distributed to volunteers. Gloves and trash bags will be provided as well.

The tradition of Solid Green Day began in 2006, when students noticed that the campus was covered in litter after Homecoming weekend.

Gary Gaulin, one of the Solid Green founders, said, “This is a great way for people who love Clemson to give a little of their time towards making Clemson look great.”

“It’s great to see the community pull together to make the campus look like a beautiful park again,” said David VanDeventer, who chairs the Solid Green Committee. “Some professors even bring their classes out for this so their students can earn some required service hours.”
