Hilltoppers asked to Clean Up on Earth Day

The City of Summit’s 11th Annual Earth Day Clean-Up will be held this Saturday, April 22 from 9:00AM to noon.  All Hilltoppers are encouraged to participate and help improve Summit’s parks and open spaces.

Volunteers of all ages are needed to collect trash and debris from city parks and open spaces, and also remove invasive plants and put wood chips on trails. Last year more than 150 volunteers participated, more than 1000 pounds of trash was collected and 12 yards of wood chips were laid.

City sites that will be part of the Earth Day Clean-Up this year include Briant Park, portions of Wilson Park, Martin’s Brook Park, and the open spaces surrounding the Transfer Station near New Providence Avenue, Constantine Place, and Risk Avenue.

Individuals and walk-ins are welcome at Briant Park and Martin’s Brook Park. Just bring your work gloves and a beverage in a reusable container. Bags for collecting trash and recycling will be provided. And attention Middle Schoolers: Community Service hours are available!

To register a group for participation, please email Environmental Commission chairperson Beth Lovejoy at beth.t.lovejoy@gmail.com.  The clean-up is sponsored by the City of Summit Environmental Commission.
