Letter submitted May 10 from Joanne Clark of Greenwich Green & Clean 

Greenwich Green & Clean will be in your neighborhood on Saturday, May 13. We will be rallying volunteers to join the Town-wide Cleanup Day.

litterWinter litter must be removed from parks, walkways and roadways to maintain a beautiful Town. When litter exists in a neighborhood personal behaviors are negatively affected.

Stop in at your local fire house or Greenwich Point before noon to pick up trash bags and gloves provided by Greenwich Green & Clean. Choose an area to pick up trash and litter.

Or ask the Green & Clean volunteers for suggested areas where litter has blown in the wind and is trapped in hedges and open spaces.

Check the roadway near your home or walk through a Town park to collect litter. When your trash bag is full return it to dumpsters provided at fire houses for proper disposal.

Litter, including paper, coffee cups, food wrappers and cans, is blown by the wind or dropped by users and is left lying in public spaces. Town-wide Cleanup Day is an efficient method for each of us to collect what is in our sight.

Please join Greenwich Green & Clean to help beautify Greenwich. We can’t accomplish our mission without your help. Thank you.
