First Annual Walpole Clean Up Day A Huge Success!

A somewhat tardy (my bad) report from Tara on April 20th’s, First Annual Walpole Clean Up Day!

Over 60 volunteers, 200 bags of trash and recyclables, 183 lbs of mixed metals, 33 tires and 1 complete toilet = a hugely successful First Annual Walpole Clean Up Day!  In just three short hours, our army of volunteers scoured the highways and byways of Walpole, North Walpole and Drewsville, searching for – and finding – the detritus of fast food meals, after work refreshments and cigarette breaks that had been tossed from the windows of passing vehicles.  Our great staff did yeoman’s work in trucking most of the collection to the transfer station (see photo) and separating and sorting it once there.  If you missed it, you can join us next year, Saturday, April 19, 2014, for our Second Annual Walpole Clean Up Day!  Thank you to all who helped make our Earth Day celebration a great one.
