Green Up Day is a statewide event that brings community volunteers of all ages together to clean up Burlington's parks, streets, and public lands. Held annually on the first Saturday of May, this event is family friendly, and a great way to get involved in our community. Green Up Day was launched in 1970 by Governor Deane Davis and is an annual statewide event in which over 22,000 volunteers come together to remove litter from Vermont's roadside and public spaces. Learn how to participate in this year's Green Up Day Burlington (Saturday, May 4, 2019)!

Clean-ups are a great way to spruce up your street and home. With a combined effort, residents of a street can make drastic improvements in just one day. Joining together makes the work fun and provides the opportunity for you and your neighbors to get to know each other. In addition, building pride and investing in clean-up work will inspire everyone to keep things clean all year long.

If you want to start a clean-up in your neighborhood, please contact Phet Keomanyvanh, our Community Development Specialist for Public Engagement, at pkeomanyvanh@burlingtonvt.gov or (802) 865-7172
