Green Up Day May 7

Green Up Day is on its way! 

Did you Know: Vermont was the first state in the nation to designate one special day for cleaning the entire state. 

Over 22,000 volunteers across Vermont take part in cleaning their communities’ roadsides, public places and waterways each year.  People of all ages and walks of life take part.  Many families go out together and involve their children in learning about the negative effects of littering.

Last year Bennington Highway Department picked up over 643 filled Green Up bags!! And for the First time North Bennington joined the cause and picked up over 100 more bags!  Great Job but this year ….I know we can do even better!!

Call the Town Office (802) 442-1037 before Thursday May 5th   to register who and where you’ll be cleaning up.

Learn where to pick up the special Green Up Day trash bags and how to properly dispose of them.

It’s Free, It’s Fun and It’s GREEN!!

 

REMEMBER – Be Tick Smart! The Health Department tells us they are a year-round threat now in Vermont, so take the necessary precautions of long pants, shoes, bug spray, not just on Green Up Day, but throughout the year
