Community Wide Clean Up & Fun Day

WE NEED YOUR HELP! And in return, we'll feed you and offer up a little fun.

Litter continues to be a huge issue in Opelika. It’s sad to look around our city and see trash along the roadways, in parking lots and in our creeks. Litter is harmful to human health, safety, welfare and the environment. It can impact water quality and can be a fire hazard and attract rodents. It also has a negative effect on economic development. 

Our Don’t Be An Ope-Loser campaign and Slam Dunk The Junk event are efforts to raise awareness about litter. Soon, you will begin seeing brightly painted trash cans throughout the city with educational and fun messages about anti-littering. As a part of the campaign, we are asking that if you see trash on the ground, pick it up. It is a point of civic pride to keep Opelika clean and beautiful. Be part of the solution, not the problem. Only Losers Litter! Don’t be an Ope-Loser.
