Green Up Day

Meg Gonzalez •

When: May 1, 2021, 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Hold the Date!
Community Hope & Action is helping to host Green Up Day, Saturday, May 1st. Bags are available for pickup at Townshend Elementary School late April and will be available for touch-free pick up at Leland & Gray on the day of the event from 9 am to noon.

Green Up Day, by nature, is an activity of social distancing as citizens of all ages get outside and clean up miles of Vermont roads. "Participating in Green Up Day is one small way to find some normalcy in our tilted world," says one Green Up Day Coordinator, Robin Rieske. Green Up Day provides a sense of commitment to where we live and to each other. It is about healthy surroundings, and connecting our communities with a goal for common greatness. This well-loved community event will help contribute to the physical, social and mental health of Vermonters as much as their Green Up activities will help beautify our state.

So, swing by Leland & Gray on Saturday May 1st from 9am to noon to pick up your trash bags and receive a goodie bag as well!

Filled bags can be dropped at Townshend transfer station on Saturday May 1st free of charge from 8am - 2pm. Please use the correct locations at that site, practice social distancing and protect yourselves with masks and gloves.

For local locations to get bags and more information: or contact Meg at 365-4700.
