Join your neighbors and hundreds of others from all around the state for Vermont’s annual labor of love on Saturday, May 6th for Green Up Day!
- WHAT: 47th Annual Green Up Day
- WHEN: Saturday, May 6th, 2017
- WHERE: Your community
- HOW: Click here to find out how to participate
We may be the Green Mountain State, but we’re also the green roadsides and riverways state! Show some love and spend a few hours helping your fellow Vermonters clean up a winter’s worth of trash. The green glow you feel will last a lot longer than the time you donate to the cause.
Green Up Vermont will supply the bags—you supply the pick-up-itude! It’s fun, you meet all kinds of great people, and you get that sweet glow from having taken part in something really big and wonderful.
How to take part
Please remember: Recyclables must be clean & dry
If you want to recycle cans, bottles, paper, and cardboard found along the road, we can only accept them if they are clean and dry. That means no dirt and no residue of drink or food. Unfortunately, contaminated recyclables reduce the efficiency of our recycling system, and can contribute to lowering the amount we are paid for our materials, which means less funding for our recycling system.
Recycle right—and throw contaminated material in the trash. Thank you for your efforts!
