APRIL 23, 2022

8:00am - 2:00pm

Help make Stafford a cleaner, greener, and more beautiful place to live and play! In collaboration with the Stafford Garden Club, the Town of Stafford invites all citizens to pitch in for a Community-Wide Cleanup Day on Saturday, April 23.

 

Families, friend groups, neighbors, civic organizations, and businesses are encouraged to register and clean up a neighborhood, roadside, park, or trail that is meaningful to you. Not only will the event help beautify our town and make it safer, it brings together all corners of the community for a rewarding and productive day.

 

FREE collection bags, safety gear, and no-charge disposal will be available for registered participants.

Supplies may be picked up at Town Hall Tuesday, April 19 through Thursday, April 21 from 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm and on Saturday, April 23 from 8:00 am - 10:00 am. These special collection bags have been designated specifically for this cleanup event, which allows for free same-day disposal on April 23.

 

Once you've collected litter and debris from your registered location,

return designated collection bags to Town Hall between

8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. on April 23 for free disposal. 

The goal is to cleanup as much of the Stafford as possible, improve aesthetics and bolster civic pride!

THINGS TO CONSIDER...

  • We are asking our volunteers to pick up any litter or debris that can be easily picked up without harming yourself or others. 

  • It is important to note that the bags should be used only to clean up litter and trash -- no household items or yard waste. 

  • Be sure to wear bright-colored clothes and watch out for traffic, if you choose to clean a roadway.

  • Where should I clean?  Feel free to clean along the road where you live.  You can also volunteer to clean a public park, green space or trail. Please see the map below for locations that have been previously registered.  

  • Kids are encouraged to help, but please keep them safe and off busy roads. Consider cleaning parks and paths instead. If you have a large group - such as a boy or girl scout troop - and would like assistance finding an appropriate location, please call 860-851-8102.

  • If you see a tire or other large item on the roadside during the event on April 23, please report the item by call or texting 860-331-0243.
