Green Up Day is this Saturday, May 7. The statewide trash cleanup is organized by Green Up coordinators from each of The Valley towns. Each town's coordinator will be distributing, and in some cases picking up, green trash bags left along the roadside or at specified locations throughout The Valley.


In Warren, bags will be at the East Warren schoolhouse, the town clerk's office (Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), The Warren Store and Warren Elementary School.  Rootswork is organizing this year's effort.

Full trash bags can be dropped at the East Warren schoolhouse parking lot on May 7 or at the Valley Transfer Station on Route 100. Other drop-off locations include the information center on Route 100 and the bottom of the Lincoln Gap Road. For further information, call Carl Lobel at 496-4025. 

The Duxbury Land Trust (DLT) is once again organizing Green Up Day for Duxbury. Bags are available at the town clerk’s office, the Duxbury Country Store in South Duxbury, and by calling Vince Franke at 244-7698 in North Duxbury.

Those who wish to green up Duxbury should complete work by noon on Saturday and leave the bags by the roadside for town pick-up. The town crew will start collecting bags at noon. Work can start on Friday if that is more convenient. For more information contact Audrey Quackenbush at 244-7512.

In Moretown, Green up Day bags are available at the town offices, and full bags will be picked up along the roadside. Moretown's Green Up Day coordinator is Mike Dimotsis.

Fayston's Green Up Day coordinator is Nicole Migneault. Bags will be hanging from street signs and, once full, can be left along the roadside for pick-up by the town road crew.

In Waitsfield, the Green Up Day coordinator is Valerie Snapp. The green bags are at the Waitsfield town offices. Full bags should be left along the roadside for pick-up. Volunteers should contact Valerie Snapp (496-2280) to be assigned areas for cleanup and to specify where the full bags will be left.
