Green Up Vermont! 2017 Green Up Day is coming on Saturday, May 6, 2017 will be the perfect (guaranteed) day to spend a few hours picking up litter around your neighborhood.

Once again the town will operate a drop-off site at the East Montpelier Elementary School’s teacher parking lot from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Be sure to separate recyclables/redeemables (bottles and cans) from regular trash. The always-popular green trash bags will be available at the town office building, Dudley’s Store, the Adamant Co-op, and many other locations.

Lunch will be provided for hungry litter pickers in the EMES cafeteria from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

Chris Racanelli is our very able Green Up Day Coordinator. You can reach him at 225-6032.
