Clean Up Westford, One Hour at a Time

Now that the snow has finally melted, have you noticed something?  I have… all the trash along our streets!

Carmen Chiungos, long-time Westford resident, also noticed.  And she wasn’t going to take it lying down.  She created the Westford Litter League Green Team.  Each Saturday morning a different area of town is cleaned up by volunteers.  Who are these volunteers you ask?  They are me, you, and anyone else in Westford who doesn’t like seeing the trash.

I went the first week at Forge Pond. We picked up about 6 bags of trash. 

Every Saturday from 8am to 9am, just bring a trash bag and some hand protection.  

Come join us:

April 30 – The American Legion on Dunstable Rd

May 7 – Power Rd and Vine Brook Rd

May 14 – Bridge St. and Graniteville Rd

May 28 – Rt. 27 and Vose Hill Rd

If you can’t make it, clean up around your own street.

    Are these kid-friendly events, or grownups only?

    Kids are certainly welcome. I think you’d want to take a look at the location first – some are going to be roadsides – not so kid-friendly. That is what I am going to do. I spoke to Carmen. I am hoping that they will plan to do Edwards Beach in early June. That would be kid-friendly. You might want to make sure you have one adult per child – just to make sure they don’t pick up anything that could hurt them like broken glass.
