Thanks to the Clean Fairfax Council, the 5th Grade Waste Watchers have new tools to make their job easier and cleaner. CFC granted Belvedere the funds to buy strong grabbers that can reach into Belvedere Park’s thorny vegetation and pick up heavy, dirty items.

CFC also gave Belvedere funds for much-needed new gloves, a spring scale to weigh trash, and a rolling trash can. Having a dedicated Waste Watchers trash can means that the students can use a trash bag in successive weeks and not have to throw it away until it’s full.
