This year’s uniquely Vermont event known as Green Up Day will happen on Saturday, May 5th, 2012. On that day, residents and businesses across the state will be scouring the landscape to collect debris left by roadsides, washed into creeks, and hiding in other places that should be green and pristine instead of littered with, well, litter!
To learn how you can help out, check out the Green Up Day participation page that shows Vermont counties and will connect you with your local coordinator. Then all that’s left is to contact him or her to see how you can help out.
Green Up Day is coordinated state-wide by Green Up Vermont, a private non-profit organization. Funding for this organization comes from many sources including the State of Vermont, private businesses and individuals, and voluntary donations from towns and cities.
CSWD supports Green Up Day with an annual donation in the name of our member towns and cities. In 2011 CSWD donated $4,050 on behalf of our member towns. We also donate the recycling costs of all the tires officially collected as part of Green Up Day.
