(Pick UP-a-TON of Litter in UPTON) 

SATURDAY APRIL 21st, 10:30am- 12:30pm

Hello Upton:  Join a group of volunteers for a fun day of beautifying the town! 

Volunteers should meet PROMPTLY at 10:30 a.m. in the Upton VFW parking lot (15 Milford Street, Route 140) for coffee, donuts and a meet and greet! Please be on time.  Bonnie Combs, a representative from Blackstone Heritage Corridor will be there to hand out vests, pickers, gloves, and to register the volunteers for this event as part of a region wide effort! 

The DPW who will be on the scene to hand out their bags. Once people are registered, they can choose to clean up their own streets or to venture out to another part of town.

This is a wonderful example to set for the children and a great opportunity to teach them about the value of caring for Upton and environment! Caution is advised however. This event is at your own risk. This event may not be suitable for young children, your discretion is advised. 

The volunteers will meet back at 12:30pm to return the vests and pickers to Bonnie and for a fun group picture!   The DPW will pick up the litter on the side of roads. More info on this will be explained at the meet-up.

Thank you for your involvement. 


Try to specify on the sign up where you are thinking of cleaning. 

Also please note that participants shouldn’t go onto anyone’s private property or even the state forest as that is DCR property.
They have their own event later in the month.
