Join your friends, neighbors and colleagues for Burlington’s Annual Green Up Day, Saturday, May 6!

State of Vermont's 47th Annual Green Up Day
Saturday, May 6, 2017

8:00 am‐ 12:00 pm

Green Up Day is a statewide event and movement bringing together community members to clean up the State’s parks, streets, and neighborhoods. Come join your friends, classmates, neighbors and colleagues for this year’s Green Up Day!

To participate in Burlington’s Green Up Day, City residents and other Burlington stakeholders can pick up bags and other clean up supplies the week prior to Green Up Day, Monday, May 1 ‐ Friday, May 5, from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, and on Saturday, May 6 between 8:00 am- 12 pm at the St. Joseph’s School, Miller Center, Burlington Subaru, or Salmon Hole Park, at 4 locations:

  • St. Joseph’s School – 20 Allen Street
  • Departments of Public Works/Parks & Recreation – 645 Pine Street
  • Miller Community Center – 130 Gosse Court
  • Burlington Electric Department – 585 Pine Street
  • CEDO – City Hall, Church Street, 3rd floor
  • Burlington Subaru – Shelburne Road

On Green Up Day, the Departments of Public Works and Parks, Recreation and Waterfront will have trucks circulating on the City’s major thorough fares, picking up full, tied bags of collected trash throughout the day.  All trash collected should go into the provided Green Up Day trash bags.  Scrap metal or tires should be kept separate, not in bags, and placed in a pile at the same Green Up Drop off site; this material will be collected and recycled.

This is the second year that Green Up Day will include an incentive prize to participants.   Those picking up their bags between May 1 and May 5 at the Burlington Electric Department will be entered to win a “Green-Up Basket” including power strips, CFL bulbs, and a free energy audit conducted by Vermont Gas and BED.
