Green-Up Day is only once a year, but we encourage you to continue your efforts year round to reduce roadside litter and keep our town looking Green and Beautiful!
Thank you!

 

GREEN UP 2020 Report

 

Thank you to everyone who participated in Green Up Day in Wilmington this year. Fifty one people registered to help collect roadside litter. Nine yards of trash and 11 tires were collected.  We had contact-free bag distribution, social distancing was in place, and all seemed to go well.

This year’s success was due to our hard-working volunteers and the assistance of our town employees and road department. We appreciate all of them. Thank you also to those who pick up litter all year long on the roads where they live and along the town trails. They make a significant difference.

This year was the 50th anniversary of Green Up in Vermont. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we couldn’t have our usual lunch gathering. Nevertheless, we look forward to celebrating next year on the first Saturday in May.

Need to rent a dumpster this summer? As part of Green Up, we received four $50 off gift certificates for a dumpster rental from Casella, to be used by to 9/1 /2020. Email me your name and mailing address if you would like one. First come, first served.

If you participated in Green Up this year and would like to report any interesting finds or problem areas with excessive litter, please email Kathy. Feedback is always appreciated; questions and suggestions are welcome.

 

Thank you, one and all!
