[ARCHIVED] Green Up Day in Winooski


The City of Winooski is proud to join our fellow Vermonters for Green Up Day!

Saturday, May 1, 2021 / 9 AM – 12 PM 

Residents can pick up their Green Up bags at the following locations:

Once you've got your bag, feel free to choose an area of the City or a Public Park to "Green Up".

  • Staff and volunteers will be at the O'Brien Community Center handing out bags, safety information, and bottled water.
  • Masks and 6’ social distancing are required to pick up bags at any location.
  • When out and about, please wear your mask around others and keep a 6' distance at all times. 
  • Gloves and appropriate clothing (for sun and or rain) are recommended. 
  • Please do not pick up sharp or dangerous objects. Suspicious objects should be reported to the Winooski Police Department by using their non-emergency phone line: 802 655 0221

Disposing of your filled Green Up Day bags:

  • A dumpster will be provided in the O'Brien Community Center parking lot for Green Up Bag disposal. You may also leave your sealed bags safely out of the way of vehicles and pedestrians near the location you picked up - the City will be picking up discarded bags after 12 PM and on Sunday, May 2nd. 
  • If you would like to report remaining Green Up Day bags that we may have missed, please email our Parks Manager, Gwennie Talbot:
  • If you find or want to get rid of non-litter and large items (such as tires and household junk) please bring them to your preferred trash/recycling center.
  • CSWD offers a helpful A - Z list of things they will accept - click here to view

E-Waste Recycling Available

Our friends at Good Point Recycling will also provide an e-waste disposal option at the O'Brien Community Center. Do you have computer parts, outdated tech, or old electronics? Bring them by - they'll be set up in the parking lot!
