This year’s cleanup takes place on Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., rain or shine, followed by a celebration lunch for volunteers at the Xfinity Center.
At last year’s cleanup, nearly 600 volunteers, including groups from the boy scouts, girl scouts, local churches, community groups, and businesses, removed litter from roadsides, parks, and school grounds.
“Once the snow melts, it will reveal all the litter that has piled up over the winter months,” said Nancy Wall, executive director of Keep Mansfield Beautiful. “This year, as always, we’re counting on Mansfield residents, business owners, and community groups to help us clean up the mess on April 29.”
The deadline for registering for this year’s Great American Cleanup of Mansfield is April 15. The first 400 people to register will receive free tee shirts. Volunteers can register at http://bit.ly/1LS5tnE.
To cover the expense of running the annual cleanup, Keep Mansfield Beautiful is also seeking financial donations from local businesses and residents. Please consider making a donation.
Mansfield’s event is part of a nationwide cleanup effort led by Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s largest community improvement program. Across the state, more than 60 communities are planning events this spring as part of the Great Massachusetts Litter Cleanup.
