BAY AREA RECYCLING FOR CHARITIES’ mission is to help raise awareness and action to support our local watersheds. The Great Lakes Water Fund is designed to provide grants, donations, and support to local watershed and water related causes. This year BARC is embarking on a campaign to eradicate cigarette butts from the streets and parks of Traverse City and the greater Grand Traverse area. There will be street sweeps, awareness displays, and lots of discussion and education regarding this problem.

Stay in the loop!
