Vermont's Green Up Day
April 28, 2009
MIDDLEBURY, VT — Continuing a 26-year tradition, Addison County will once again welcome Captain Green Up this Friday as he spearheads the countywide cleanup that mirrors statewide cleanup efforts that began in 1970, according to the Addison County Independent.
Green Up Day is a staple of springtime and something Vermonters should be proud to participate in, the story stated.
"Green Up" bags are available to anyone who wishes to participate in the Saturday, May 2 event, the story noted.
Last year, Addison County residents collected nearly 18 tons of garbage, including 271 tires, 15 pieces of scrap metal, 14 televisions and other discarded electronics, the story added.
