Some say it’s not easy being green, but in Weston, it’s really not that hard. There’s a perfect opportunity to “get green” this weekend, as the town celebrates the 41st annual Green-Up Day on Saturday.
The best part about Green-Up Day in Weston is you don’t have to go any farther than your own front yard — or you can travel all over town if you are so inclined. You can spend a few minutes picking up trash and clearing some debris in your neighborhood, or several hours helping to clear out roadside ditches and haul garbage from some of the busier — and messier — parts of town. Not sure where to start? Meet at Norfield Church at 8:15 on Saturday morning, and the Kiwanis Club will hand you a garbage bag and assign you a stretch of road.
It’s fitting that Green-Up Day, a townwide spring cleaning party, coincides with Earth Day, celebrated on Monday, and National Volunteer Week, taking place all this week.
It also happens to coincide with “Good Riddance Day,” a chance to get rid of your household hazardous waste at the town transfer station from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. — no charge!
There’s something very satisfying about pitching in and making a difference. Do your part this Saturday and help keep Weston Green.
