Green Up Day 2017 Wrap-Up
Thanks to all who volunteered on Green Up Day on May 6! This year 238 people came out to “spring clean” in Colchester and they collected 3.1 tons of trash and 277 tires! A special shout out of thanks to:
County-wide, 27 tons of litter was collected and delivered to designated facilities on Saturday, May 6 and Monday, May 8, along with 1,887 tires; 2.4 tons of trash and 327 tires came from Vermont highways. One town delivered a half cubic yard of scrap metal this year. Many towns now have their own scrap bins and generate extra revenue by selling the metal.
How do Colchester’s trash totals compare to those of other towns’? While not accounting for differences in area size and population, here’s a table of some Green Up Day totals over the last five years:
We hope you’ll consider every day a “Green Up Day” and remember to deposit trash in the proper receptacle, not on the roadway. Thanks for doing your part to keep Colchester, and Vermont, beautiful!
