Join your friends, neighbors and colleagues for Burlington’s Annual Green Up Day, Saturday, May 7!

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

8:00 am‐ 12:00 pm

Come join your friends, classmates, neighbors and colleagues for this year’s Green Up Day!

Bags and clean up supplies will be available the week prior to Green Up Day, Monday, May 1 ‐ Friday, May 5, from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, at 4 locations:

•    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

Bags and clean up supplies will also be available on Saturday, May 6 between 8:00 am 12 pm the Miller Center, Burlington Subaru, and Salmon Hole Park.

This year offers a new incentive. Those picking up their bags between May 1 and May 5 at the Burlington Electric Department, 585 Pine Street, will be entered to win the “Green‐Up Basket” including power strips, LED bulbs, and other energy saving devices. 

On Green Up Day, the Departments of Public Works and Parks, Recreation and Waterfront will have trucks circling 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.

Starting late‐morning, Green Up Day volunteers are invited to join the Burlington Subaru team at 351 Shelburne Road for a “thank you“ barbeque. Throughout the morning, Burlington Subaru will also have water and snacks available.

For additional information, please contact Jennifer Green, City of Burlington, at
Groups interested in being assigned a specific site should contact Deryk Roach,

PLEASE BE SAFE: Warning about exposed hyperdermic needles, and other hazardous waste: 

Volunteers should not pick up needles, suspicious items such as propane tanks, or common household containers (bleach, laundry detergent, etc.) in un-common quantities. 

If the location is not urgent (typically no children playing in the area, no frequent pedestrian use) please report these objects with See-Click-Fix. You will need to install this program on your smart phone. 

For needles or other items that pose an immediate threat to public health, volunteers should contact the Burlington Police Department at (802) 658-2704.  Thank you very much
