Each site will have clean-up materials, including trash bags and gloves, and will serve as a drop-off location for all collected materials.
“This is a great opportunity for folks across Manchester to celebrate Earth Day and give back to our community,” said Mayor Joyce Craig. “With the warmer weather, I know we’re all looking forward to spending time outside. We want to make sure we have clean, welcoming neighborhoods, parks and trails for our residents and visitors to enjoy.”
“We are excited to once again partner with the city and Public Works for this cleanup,” said Dr. Jenn Gillis, Interim Superintendent of Manchester School District. “This is a terrific opportunity to get out, get some fresh air and do our part to beautify our community. It’s also a great lesson for our students especially: In just a few hours of work, you can help ensure that everyone can enjoy our outdoor spaces.”
