The Chicago Cubs and Hefty Trash Bags Partner on Lakeview Neighborhood Cleanup

The Hefty® brand is thrilled to partner with the Chicago Cubs and neighbors to keep the Lakeview neighborhood beautiful throughout the 2018 season.

Lake Forest, Ill. – (September 29, 2018) – The Hefty® brand has partnered with the Chicago Cubs for multiple neighborhood cleanup initiatives in 2018, including:

Daily cleanups featuring branded Hefty® Trash Bag bins. Every morning, visitors and residents of the Lakeview community encounter the Cubs Cleanup Crew and one of the six branded Hefty® bins roaming the streets to help keep the sidewalks clean.

Let’s Pitch In! Earth Day event and monthly neighbor cleanups. A group of passionate neighbors approached the Cubs to help organize ongoing cleanups and Hefty® has supported the initiative in a big way. The program launched on Earth Day and Hefty® provided volunteers, branded bags and new branded bins to support the event. More than 100 volunteers picked up trash across 43 city blocks, totaling 1,000 pounds of trash and filling all six Hefty bins to the brim! The event was featured on various news stations and Cubs and Hefty social media channels. Since the April launch, cleanups have continued throughout the summer.

Neighborhood Grounds Crew Recognition. Hefty® and the Cubs recognized two neighborhood “Head Grounds Keepers” who have been most influential in cleanup efforts throughout the year. The recipients were celebrated for their significant contributions before the August 25, 2018, game at Wrigley Field.    

These new initiatives are helping drive a strong partnership with the Chicago Cubs as the Hefty® brand joins them in supporting and caring for the community, and will continue collaborating on cleanup initiatives the rest of 2018 and into next season.
