Area Leader Tips

An Area Leader's role is to assist Keep Loudoun Beautiful during the month of April, and
really throughout the year, to coordinate cleanup of the locations for which they have
responsibility. They also monitor the roads through out the year, and report any extremely
littered areas and illegal dumps. Area Leaders are always needed, to volunteer, please
email us at Being a KLB Area Leader is a great way to get
involved in your community and keep your neighborhood streets and open spaces free of
KLB Hotline:

1. The large orange trash bags are distributed at Loudoun County community centers.
Please avoid using household trash bags. The orange bags are much stronger and also
help VDOT to recognize official cleanup trash versus personal household trash. The bright
fluorescent orange bags, also provide you with a little extra measure of safety as they are
more visible to passing motorists.  Blue recycling bags are distributed at the KLB
luncheon and are otherwise available though the Area Leader Coordinator.

2. Leave the bags along the roadside in small piles. Don't use driveways or private
property. Do place the bags well back from the payment or road surface. Try and avoid
large piles, as it could encourage unauthorized additions and dumping. Small, scattered
piles along the road are preferred by VDOT. VDOT does not pickup on Monday. If bags
have not been picked up by 6PM Thursday, please call the KLB Hotline.  
Note that VDOT
will sadly not recycle anything, so please take recycling to the nearest recycling center
or recycle curbside at your residence.

3. VDOT has agreed to pick up individual heavy items such as bed springs, appliances,
tires with rims, etc., if they are located near the road and are not part of a dump site.
Please do not attempt to move heavy items yourself. Heavy items need to be identified in
your Sunday call-in. Tag the item with an orange bag or leave filled orange bags next to the

4. KLB's procedure for landfill usage has changed. We have been issued plastic account
cards which we will loan out on an as needed basis. The cards must be carefully guarded
and returned to a member of the Board. To use the landfill card please call the KLB
hotline. The Loudoun County Sanitary Landfill address is 20939 Evergreen Mills Road and
hours of operation is Tuesday thru Saturday 8:00 am - 4:00 pm From Leesburg, follow
Route 15 South past the Leesburg bypass, make left at traffic light about a quarter mile
south onto Evergreen Mills Road. Follow Evergreen Mills Road Approximately 4 miles. The
landfill will be on your right - look for blue "sanitary landfill" signs.

5. Drive your area and take note of illegal dumps, extremely littered areas and abandoned
and/or inoperable cars that might need special attention. Please try to eliminate all dumps
on public property in your area with the use of your available manpower. Report to
Hotline those dump areas that your area members can not handle. Also report any
abandoned or inoperable vehicles in your area whether on the roadside, in a field, or on
personal property.

6. Take pictures, before, during and after, if you can. Some Area Leaders have in the past
sent these in with the Area Leader Reports and they can be useful for publicity.

7. To obtain volunteer help, contact local Boy, Cub or Girl Scouts, civic, or church groups in
your area. Regional leaders for the Scouts are listed on the Area Leader page of this
website. Post flyers in public places, such as grocery stores, post office, neighbors paper
boxes, etc.

8. Call the current adopt-a-highway volunteers in your area. Encourage them to participate
in April and include their numbers in your report.

9. Email your weekly roadside pickup report every Sunday to
org, using the following format:

  • Give your name and Area.
  • Give the route number of the "collected" road where the bags etc. have been left in
    small piles. Please use only route numbers unless you are in a suburban
    neighborhood where only road names are known.
  • Give the Route numbers of the nearest intersecting roads (or the name of a town)
    on either side of the "collected" road section.
  • Give the total number of bags, number of tires and list any other unusual or large
    items you may have collected for each location where bags have been left.
  • Use area maps to keep track of which roads in your area have been covered and
    which roads need attention.

IMPORTANT: Be sure to complete the Area Leader Report Form at the end of April
and mail or fax it in to the Spring Cleanup chair listed on the bottom of the form. Please
summarize all your pickup call-ins plus all your helpers’ reports. You can access a
printable version of the Area Leader Report Form by clicking on the link above.

The statistics provided in the reports are important to KLB when we apply for grants. They
are also used for media publicity and to distribute financial awards to organized groups
who are participating. It would be helpful to KLB if you would hand in your area map (a
copy will do) with your name, phone number, and comments regarding illegal dumps and
abandoned and/or dead cars if you found any.
