Try This Tip: Assign roles to team members

Collector
Remember to wear your gloves, and use a trash-grabber if you have one.

Bag Handler
Don’t overstuff the bag, and if you find something sharp or dangerous… BE CAREFUL!

Tracker
Keep track of what your team collects by using the Clean Swell Apps pollution tracker.

This is how we know where more attention is needed.
