The 10th Annual Great American Cleanup of Mansfield will be held on April 29, 2017.
Every spring, hundreds of local students, parents, community groups and localbusiness volunteers gather to give the town of Mansfield, Massachusetts a thorough spring cleaning. Volunteers fan out across town to pick up the trash that litters our roadsides, parks, schools, and other public areas. The day concludes with a free picnic lunch at the Xfinity Center VIP tent.
- Students and Scouts: Earn community service hours
- Parents: Teach your kids to volunteer and show pride in their own community
- Business leaders: Build camaraderie by organizing a team of employees
During the first Great American Cleanup of Mansfield in May 2008, more than 1,000 volunteers removed nearly five tons of litter and debris from roadsides and parks, including 200 bags of recyclables and more than 100 tires. Since then, our annual cleanup has helped us reduce the volume of litter in Mansfield and made a noticeable improvement in our town’s appearance.
Mansfield’s volunteers join millions of others from across the nation in the Great American Cleanup between March 1 and May 31. Keep America Beautiful, the organization that created the Great American Cleanup, expects 3 million volunteers will participate in 30,000 community improvement activities and educational workshops nationwide this year. Activities include removing litter, beautifying parks, organizing a recycling or graffiti removal program, and other projects.
