Volunteers Pitch in for Earth Day Cleanup

The volunteers shown above collected over 2 tons of trash.

More than fifty Bellingham residents gathered on a rainy Saturday to celebrate Earth Day (April 22) by cleaning litter off the streets of Bellingham. Organized by Town Health Agent Mike Catalano from the Bellingham Board of Health, the event was a cooperative effort by the Department of Public Works, the Parks Department, the Police Department, the Senior Center (who supplied vans), the Town Administrator’s office, and the Board of Health, and included volunteers from the Boy Scouts, the National Honor Society, and the DARE program, as well as local residents. Eight roads were targeted for cleanup, and at the end of the day, at least three truckloads containing over 2 tons of trash were hauled out. While Catalano said this was the first cleanup event of its kind, he hopes to make it an annual Earth Day tradition.
