From REC:

Saturday, April 8

8 am – 12 pm

We are excited to invite you to join us for this year’s REC Earth Day Neighborhood & Garden Cleanups!

This is truly a community-wide event in which residents come together every year to give Worcester the Spring-cleaning it deserves.

Last year, more than 1,000 volunteers came together to pick up more than 50 tons of trash at over 60 sites in Worcester!!!๐ŸŒธโค

Let’s do even more this year to make
Worcester cleaner and greener๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒบ!

WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOUโค๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’œโค!

If you would like to help us coordinate the cleanup of a particular site, we encourage you to sign up as a Site Coordinator.

Otherwise, please sign up as a Volunteer (or group of volunteers) and we will connect you with a site in your area!

This event is only possible because of your volunteerism and commitment to our city. The REC, along with many partners including city government, non-profits, and businesses provide the materials, pick-up services and logistics.

We look forward to working with you!

Please feel free to contact Pat Barnosky with any questions or concerns
