Special flood clean-up day Saturday

To combat the lingering effects of this summer's devastating flooding, Green Up Vermont is organizing a statewide clean up day on Saturday, Aug. 26.

Operating very similarly to the annual May Green Up Day, this new event will use orange bags instead of the iconic green bags.

Two Windham County towns - Londonderry and Grafton - are among those around the state that are asking volunteers to help with specific projects.

In Grafton, volunteers can pick up bags and gloves at the Town Office at 117 Main St. anytime during regular hours until Friday, Aug. 25.

Volunteers should bring full bags to the special recovery clean-up dumpster at the Town Highway Garage at 220 Bell Rd. on Saturday, Aug. 26.

For more information, contact Town Administrator Morgan Wilbur during normal business hours at 802-843-2552 or [email protected].

Details for Londonderry's efforts were unavailable at press time.

Volunteers should use safety precautions when working in and around water and roadsides.
