Join the first annual town wide Old Saybrook Green Up Day Saturday, April 27, 8 a.m. to noon. This is a great opportunity to get out and see friends and neighbors, help spruce up the town for the season, and remove the trash left by the recent storms and litterbugs.
For added social networking, start your trash journey with the Green Up send-off celebration, 8 a.m. on the green and disperse from there to clean up the roadside litter. Whether starting from the green, or working in your own neighborhood, bring filled garbage bags to one of several designated drop-off locations: the Green, Clark Memorial Park (Town Park) or the Town Beach Parking Lot. Free garbage bags will be available at those locations as well. Public works will collect bags left by the side of the road on Monday, April 29, but to reduce their workload, bringing them to one of the designated areas is preferred.
There are many community activities taking place April 27, why not bring along a bag or two and look for trash on your way to baseball, the fishing derby, the Seaside Shuffle or the Fire Department/SSKP food drive? Every can, bottle, bag and fast food container picked up is one less item that will end up in Long Island Sound, and eventually in the great floating plastic island in the middle of the ocean.
