Would you like to start a group in your county?
Well there is many things that go into starting a group, and some costs.
If you want to start small, here is what you do:

1) Contact one of the FMRS for important information!
2) Get permission from each land owner for a clean-up spot.
3) Anyone involved needs a signed waiver.
4) Get appropriate equipment for cleaning (gloves, shovels, buckets, clothing).
5) Get appropriate medical care equipment (small med kit from Wal-Mart).
6) Have a waste collection agency and recycling agency who will take what you collect.
7) Make sure everyone has a way to contact everyone.
8) Make sure you have emergency numbers (Including police for reporting illicit items).
9) Remember: Safety, Teamwork, and Fun!
