Join your neighbors to help celebrate Earth Day at the annual Rid Litter Day event on Sunday, April 28 from 11 am to 1 pm at the Town Green (opposite Town Hall). You’re invited to stop by the Green to pick up a trash bag and map for an area of town where roadside litter can be collected. Pick a road or intersection of your choice, or we will assign you a location the day of the event. All trash bags will then be picked up by Woodbridge Public Works crews and disposed of at the Transfer Station.
There will also be informational tables to help you learn how to reduce, reuse and recycle. More information will also be available about changes coming to the Woodbridge Transfer Station this summer.
Get a jump on your spring cleaning and plan to bring your household’s obsolete confidential/financial papers for secure disposal at a Paper Shredding truck we will have at the event (for residents only, no businesses, please). You can also do your part to help prevent prescription drug abuse by cleaning out your medicine cabinet and bringing your expired, unused or unwanted medications to the prescription drug take-back box which will also be available the day of the event in the Police Department’s lobby (entrance off the Town Green).
“I’d like to thank the Ad Hoc Community Council and Sustainability Committee for organizing an expansion of this important community event to beautify our town and help the environment,” said First Selectman Beth Heller.
We ask that drivers be extra careful while driving in Woodbridge on Sunday, April 28 since there will be people picking up trash on the side of the road. Participants are asked to wear bright colors and wear their own work gloves.
