2011 Earth Day Trash Clean Up and Concert!
Your Questions Answered!
The Clean Up?
Saturday, April 23rd: Participants are asked to come to the Stage Fort Park Visitor’s Center between 9 and 12 to pick up gloves and empty trash and recycling bags for their clean up. Friday delivery of bags can be arranged by contacting Sharon. See contact info below.
Collected Trash and Recycling?
Participants will be given yellow bags to put collected trash into and clear bags for recyclables. We are asking participants to bring their collected trash and recycling back to Stage Fort Park. The City of Gloucester, who is providing the trash bags, will also be picking up collected trash and recyclables.
Where is the Clean Up?
The clean up is citywide and participants are encouraged to clean up a public area in Gloucester of their choosing – it could be their school grounds, favorite playing field, park or beach. (We will also have a list of suggested sites on hand, if folks need ideas).
What if we have a lot of trash or find a very heavy / cumbersome item (e.g. appliance)?
We do not expect you to transport really heavy / cumbersome items. If possible, it is requested that it be left in a location that can be easily accessed by a City truck or left where found if too heavy to move. . In either case, it will be important to let us know the location so we can let the Department of Public Works know.
What should I wear?
Participant are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather and for the activity (picking up trash!)
My child would like to participate but I can’t make it?
Any young children unaccompanied by a guardian will work with Clean City Initiative and pick up trash at Stage Fort Park from 9 to noon.
Do we need to pick up trash from 9 to noon?
We are asking participants to do what they can on that day. There is no obligation to work the full 3 hours or those 3 hours.
The concert will take place at Cape Ann Brewery (11 Rogers Street) starting at 6 pm.
