Last year’s Green Up event was a great success and this year we’re hoping for even more participation. Barre City has been left tarnished by trash and debris from this past fall and winter. Spaulding’s Action for the Environment (S.A.F.E.) is currently organizing this event and gathering Green Up bags and gloves to distribute. We are encouraging individuals and groups to get involved this year to help Barre recover from the littering we have been through this year. This combined effort will help make Barre a cleaner place.
Green Up Day is Saturday, May 7. As in the past, Barre will extend the green up for a week. On Monday, May 2, and through the course of the week prior to Green Up Week, 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 the Resource on Granite Street.
On May 7 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., students from Spaulding will be at the Ayers Street entrance to Spaulding High School, coordinating areas to clean up and distribute Green Up bags.
The city will be collecting only Green Up bags May7-12. Green Up bags with yard wastes will not be collected. Individuals or groups interested in participating in Green Up or people who know of areas that need additional attention, please contact Doug LaPoint at Spaulding High School, 802-476-4811 ext. 2215.
