Rotary seeking donations to support Earth Day Cleanup

After a two year hiatus, the Rotary Club of Southborough is bringing back their Earth Day Cleanup event. It’s being promoted as a “30th annual” celebration.

As usual, the Cleanup takes place on the Saturday following Earth Day rather than the middle of the week. The event is scheduled this year for April 23rd from 8:30 am – 11:30 am. (Rain date of April 24th.)

Earth Day Cleanup flyerIt’s a bit early for a save-the-date. But the Rotary isn’t just looking for people to sign up. They are also reaching out for donations to help encourage volunteers to participate. The Rotary gives out T-shirts, pizza, and plants to those who help cleanup Southborough’s streets and public spaces.

They are asking for local individuals, organizations, and companies to consider donating towards that effort. Donations can be sent to their PO Box 391 at the Southborough, MA or you can call member Carl Guyer at 774 249-3555.

As for the Cleanup day:

To reserve a favorite part of town to clean, please call the DPW at 508 485-1210, or visit their office next to the Transfer Station to sign up and pick up trash bags.

You can also come to the DPW building between 8 and 11 AM on the day of the Clean Up to pick a location.

Updated (4/22/22 10:14 am): Rotary posted more details on the April 23rd Earth Day Cleanup. See details in the Planet Palooza post here.

*The 30th anniversary would have been in 2020 had the pandemic not intervened.
