Earth Day Cleanups 2014

The Regional Environmental Council will once again be coordinating Earth Day Cleanups on Saturday, April 12, from 8:00am-noon.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the Volunteer Application.

If you are interested in becoming a site coordinator, please call Koby or Benito at the REC at 508-799-9139 or email

As longtime readers know, this will be my seventh year coordinating the God’s Acre/Swan Avenue site for Earth Day cleanups.

I didn’t post a lot about last year’s cleanup because it was incredibly mellow.  It was always our goal to have the cleanups get to a point where just a few folks can maintain the site a few times a year, and that’s where we’re at right now.  Thanks to everyone who got us to this point!

Consider Becoming a Site Coordinator

I’d also like to encourage folks to consider becoming a site coordinator.

Four years ago, I wrote a short guide to beginning cleanups in your neighborhood, and I’ve listed some additional tips here and here.  If this sounds like something you’d like to do, call or email the REC.  If you have questions about how the process works, comment on this post or send me an email.

As always, I appreciate the work of the REC, the city, and others in organizing these cleanups, and the enormous effort volunteers put into cleaning up sites all around the city.
