Last year’s Green Up event had a phenomenal turnout, and this year we’re hoping for even more participation. As you (and your tires) may know, Barre’s roads have had a very rough winter. Melting snow has left behind massive amounts of trash, a very disconcerting sight. That is why Green Up Day/Week will be so vital this year. Spaulding Action For the Environment (S.A.F.E.) is currently organizing this event and gathering Green Up bags and gloves to distribute. We are highly encouraging individuals and groups to get involved this year to help Barre recover from the littering we’ve been through this year. This joined effort will help to make Barre City a cleaner place.
Green Up Day is Saturday, May 3, but as in the past, Barre will extend Green Up for the week. On Monday, April 28 and through the course of the week prior to Green Up Day, Green Up bags and gloves will be available at the front entrance of Spaulding High School, Merchants Bank on Main Street, the Barre City Clerk’s Office, and ReSource on Granite Street.
On Saturday, May 3 from 8am to 1pm, students from Spaulding will be at the Ayers Street entrance to Spaulding High School coordinating areas to clean up and distributing Green Up bags.
The city will be collecting Green Up bags May 5-8th. Green Up bags with yard wastes will not be collected. Individuals or groups interested in participating in Green Up or who have ideas of events that you want to organize or of areas that need additional attention please contact Doug LaPoint at Spaulding High School 802-476-4811 ext. 2115.
