What to expect on Green Up Day

It’s almost May 1, which means it’s almost Green Up Day—that tradition when Vermonters grab a big bag and fill it with trash collected from roadways, waterways, and around communities throughout the state.
Green Up Vermont relies on the help of volunteers and town coordinators to help pick up trash—and the evidence speaks for its success. Kate Alberghini, executive director of Green Up Vermont, said 14,000 volunteers participated statewide last year, picking up 241 tons of trash and 900 discarded tires.
