Waste Pro and the Junior Chamber of Commerce partnered today (7-23-22) on a community cleanup near Flagler-Palm Coast High School (FPC) and SR-100.
Approximately 20 volunteers separated into two teams to clean the right of way and sidewalks along SR-100 from Wawa to Belle Terre Blvd and along Bulldog Drive next to FPC. This initiative and the Junior Chamber “Green Team” were created by Junior Chamber Student Leader Jasmine Coache, who is beginning her junior-year at FPC. The Junior Chamber is a 501c3 non-profit charity organization designed to help business leaders directly support local students in our high schools.
Palm Coast-Flagler Regional Chamber President & CEO Greg Blose, said “Our Junior Chamber student leader Jasmine Coache walks down this sidewalk every day during the school year. The cleanup idea is Jasmine’s, and with Waste Pro’s support, we were happy to help make sure the path travelled by students to and from FPC is free of glass, trash and debris.”
The most interesting item found during the cleanup was a completely full bottle of men’s Versace cologne, which gave everybody a laugh (pic above).

Props to Waste Pro for doing a community service in spite of being kicked to the curb by the city.
I agree. Even though it doesn’t matter and the games lost, they seem to be going out as true professionals. The men that work the route that includes my block have really stepped up and are doing a great job (not that I had a problem with them in the past).

Very comendable, job well done! Thanx….But the thing of it is, we have to many outsiders, and some homegrown idiots, who toss what ever out the car window. Litter is a problem everywhere in town, beer cans & soda cans are on streets all over town. It wasnt like that before, now its a problem. Maybe some tickets for littering? Whatever happened to being a good citizen? What ever happened to having some pride in your city? Lets all pitch in and make this city shine. Dont be a litterbug.
