Wondering who'll obliterate Westport's litter now that spring's here? We will! Every citizen is being called to arms for Green-up Westport Day, Saturday, April 17, a town-wide litter clean up organized by the Westport Beautification Committee and the Parks & Recreation Department. Free trash bags are available between 9 and 11 a.m. at Jesup Green, where Beautification Committee volunteers will be working. A letter has been sent to 60 civic organizations and community groups asking for help and cooperation organizing the clean-up and in picking adopted clean-up spots, says Parks & Rec Director Stuart McCarthy.
Individuals can join a group clean-up or do their own thing, maybe cleaning up their street or any public space. (There's plenty of litter to go around!) At the conclusion, the town will collect bagged garbage and debris from the adopted spots. Groups should specify the time of clean-up by calling the Westport Parks and Recreation Department at 341-5091 prior to April 17.
