This spring marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 25, 2020. Let’s celebrate by joining Green Hanson’s annual Clean Up Green Up by cleaning up our town. During Earth week, April 19-25 let’s all try and spend some time cleaning up trash along our streets. The Hanson Highway Department has joined us in our efforts and will be helpful disposing the trash appropriately.
Where to participate? Here’s some “hot spots” that have been pointed out:
County Road; Route 27 near the transfer station and towards Elm Street, as well as the top of Elm Street; pockets along Winter Street, especially near Brook Street; pockets of all along Whitman Street, especially near King Street to Route 58; pockets along West Washington Street; Maquan Street near the pond; and anything else you can find!
What to do? Go prepared with garbage bags, boots, gloves (vinyl/plastic are best), brightly colored clothing with long sleeves and pants. Be careful of your surroundings, and watch for ticks and sticker bushes.
When you are done collecting, you can notify the Hanson Highway department and you can drop the bags off at 797 Indian Head St. Please notify them via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 781-293-2822 that you are leaving bags from Clean Up Green Up. If the trash is too heavy, bulky, too much for your car, you can call or email as listed and a member of the Highway Department will come pick your hard work.
If you are on Facebook, post your work on a Hanson page, or on the Green Hanson page so we can see how much trash we have all picked up. For more information on Green Hanson, please contact: email@example.com.
