Now that the snow is gone, you may have a better view of some of the litter along our streets. (Never a pretty sight.) Luckily, you’ll soon have a chance to help fix that.

The Rotary Club is sponsoring it’s 25th Annual Earth Day Clean Up. The date is fitting, so it should be easy to remember – April 25th.

(Truthfully, it’s a tribute to Earth Day. Actual Earth Day is April 22nd. But how many people can ditch work to pick up litter?)

That Saturday, community members are encouraged to volunteer time cleaning our streets. The starting time is 8:00 am at Southborough DPW Building.

To motivate an early start, coffee, pastries and T-shirts will be available. (First come first served.)

Earth Day clean up flyerVolunteers are welcomed to celebrate their efforts at the Town Gazebo at 11:30 am. Pizza, soda and ice cream will be served.

In between, you’ll be helping to clean up the streets in town. Remember to BYOG – Bring Your Own Work Gloves!! (Bug spray is also encouraged.)

Have a favorite spot that needs TLC? To adopt a favorite street in advance, call Southborough’s Department of Public Works at 508-485-1210.

Otherwise, you can sign up that morning at DPW’s location next to the Transfer Station.

The rain date for clean up is Sunday, April 26th.
