Some Good News Finally!

Trash crews have begun cleaning up on state routes in the area.

There were crews out picking up trash this past week. I have seen it on the on and off ramps in Westborough on both 495 & Rt.9 ramps and some areas of Rt.9 itself eastbound. Great news and I just wish I knew if this is being done by state workers, or if this is Westborough doing it alone. Either way its good to know that there are people out there aware of whats going on and making sure it gets taken care of.

Has anyone seen any other areas where things are getting cleaned up?

I think it's state workers, and sometimes prisoners, doing some good work, if only they could keep up year round OR people stop littering so much! GREEN UP day is coming soon for our town!

Hey Frank, yes I agree my friend. Is there any info you can post for us about GREEN UP Day ? Let us know as I am always interested in this type of positive action.

here's that info! ONE day a year when everyone can pitch in: 4th Annual Spring Green Up Day Saturday, April 28, 2012 9:00 am - 12:00 pm Location: All of Hopkinton! (SHRED DAY!!! In conjunction with Spring Green Up Day, the town will be offering a "Shred Day" also on April 28th. A Harvey shredding truck will be parked at the Center School from 9am - 2pm for town residents to drop off paper for shredding.) Join us for Hopkinton's 4th Annual Spring Green Up by meeting at the Town Common at 9:00 am on April 28th. Many town organizations, clubs and neighborhoods will again be participating in our effort to clean up Hopkinton. Please grab a pair of gloves and a garbage bag and either head out your door to pick up trash or identify an area of town that needs clean up and head there. We will be working with town groups to organize clean up of areas in need of clean up. Please let us know where you plan to go so that we do not duplicate efforts. Let's make this year our best year yet! Harvey’s will be donating three dumpsters for the effort as well as help will be coming from the police department to identify illegal dumping areas in town. Group leaders will meet at the Town Common at 9:00AM on April 28th. We will also be handing out gloves and trash bags on the Town Common at that time for anyone who is interested.

Shred Day is 4/28/12 at 9 am at the town common - thanks Frank!!! We need lots of people there, and we will need help with the furniture dumped on Fruit street, including a toilet and a couch.

John, We'll have a pickup truck for large items like that, Last year we got a antique metal basin, 60 year old car parts, televisions etc. I have to coach a little league game in the middle of the day, so either right after 9:00 AM or later in the afternoon we'll schedule a time for the pick up truck. John, we'll need you to help us!
