Green-Up Day is Saturday, May 7th

Here’s an announcement from Melinda Scott, our town Conservation Planner:

Williston Green-Up Day

This year marks the 46th anniversary of Green Up Day, which began in April 1970 and continues today as a unique Vermont tradition. Green Up Day brings out thousands of volunteers throughout the state to remove litter and trash from our roadways, waterways and public places. This year Green Up Day will occur on Saturday, May 7th. This unique tradition helps us all practice stewardship on a local level.

In 2015, approximately 200 Williston residents picked up over 1.5 tons of trash and 25 discarded tires! We’re hoping for just as many volunteers and a warm, sunny day for this year’s annual event. Before heading out, please review this safety list. For more information or to pick a stretch of roadside in Williston to “Green Up” stop by the Williston Planning Office or call Melinda at 878-6704, Ext 4.
