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!!!🌸❤
Let’s do even more this year to make
Worcester cleaner and greener🌻🌺!
WE CAN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU❤💛💜❤!
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
