Rubbage Ride

Saturday, March 28, 2015
8:30 am-12:30 pm
Carmichael Gymnasium

As a part of Service Raleigh and in coordination with the Great American Clean-up, NC State University will host the 6th Annual Rubbage Ride on Saturday, March 28th. You can sign up to participate in the Rubbage Ride project during which participants travel campus and the surrounding community by bike, picking up litter and beautifying campus along the way. We have had over 150 participants each year take part in this fun, competitive event. 

So what will you do?
Participants will pick up as much litter as possible as they ride their bikes (or walk) campus and in the surrounding area. Participants will return to the Carmichael Gym by 11:45 am to sort their rubbage into trash, recycling and compost. Lunch and prizes will be provided after the event!

What do you need?
10-15 bikes will be available on a first come first serve basis. However, if you do not have a bike or cannot ride a bike, you may walk around campus picking up litter or just be there for the fun!

How do I sign up?
