On Saturday, May 1, Rutland City residents are invited to participate in Vermont's annual Green Up Day.
Rutland's United Neighborhoods will be coordinating this year's effort with the help and support of the City of Rutland, the Dept. of Public Works, Rutland Probation & Parole and the Vermony Dept. of Corrections.
Special "Green Up" bags will be distributed to volunteers in each neighborhood between 8am and 11am at the following locations:
•N.W. neighborhood at the N.W. Elementary School parking lot.
•N.E. neighborhood at the Godnick Center parking lot.
•S.E. Neighborhood at the Success School parking lot.
•S.W. Neighborhood at the St. Peter Church parking lot on Meadow Street.
The Rutland City DPW employees will once again volunteer to pick up the Green Up bags and follow their winter plowing routes. Bags can also be dropped off at the distribution sites.
There will be breakfast food, water and hand sanitizer available at each distribution site. Volunteers are encouraged to wear/bring heavy duty or rubber gloves.
