Wilmington Holds Successful Town Clean-Up Day

WILMINGTON, MA — The Town of Wilmington Department of Planning and Conservation wishes to thank all those who volunteered at the Annual Town Clean-Up Day.

Approximately 30 people of all ages volunteered their time to help beautify the Town’s woods and wetlands by removing litter and debris on Town Conservation Land and parks. The focus this year was Town Forest, Town Park, Silver Lake, and Glen Road Berry Bog at Town Hall.

Take Junk, who recently opened a location in Wilmington, kindly donated high-visibility t-shirts for the volunteers and provided trash pickup and disposal. Dunkin Donuts and Market Basket also donated refreshments.

Town Clean-Up Day is held each year on the third Saturday in September, but anyone is welcome to volunteer their time year-round.  The Department of Planning and Conservation is hoping to hold a similar event with additional activities in April to celebrate Earth Day.

If you have any questions or want additional information, please contact Ryan Hale, Conservation Agent, at 978-658-8238 orrhale@wilmingtonma.gov.
