The City of Winooski is joining Green Up Vermont to celebrate 50 years of Green Up Day!

Green Up Day was launched in 1970 and remains one of Vermont’s most beloved traditions. The annual statewide event invites volunteers to remove litter from roadsides and public spaces in an effort to promote our state’s natural landscape and the livability of our communities. As you may have heard, this year’s event has been rescheduled to Saturday, May 30, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are excited to get out and clean up Vermont with safe social distance, gloves and masks. Although this Green Up Day will be different than any other we have experienced, it will not hinder the pride in our civic service, the connection to our communities, and love of this spring tradition that makes our state shine.” - Green Up Vermont
