Green Up Day is a 40+ year tradition in Vermont. Barre Town participates in the annual spring clean up held the first Saturday of May. Clubs, organizations, families, and neighborhood groups volunteer to clean up litter and other debris from public areas. The Town provides collection of debris from public areas, along with collection and disposal of litter and bulk items cleaned up by scores of volunteers. Safety vests and road signs are provided where needed. The Town also offers latex gloves. Vermont Green Up Day supplies the durable trash bags. Click here for more information.
The 'thank you' barbeque lunch for Green Up Day volunteers is organized by the Girl Scouts and held at the Recreation Area Picnic Shelter.
